The Life & Times of Our Daily Bread


feeding the pot
means food for the feeding.
starting a sourdough starter.
soft dreams of drifting white,
edging and spittley spilling,
microbially alive,
and dancing on worktops,
edging its way where gravity falls.
feeding the pot.
food for the feeding.
sourdough starter.
bread lofting full – soft spinnaker sails.
summer breezes scented with leaven.
Blessings on thee – rising to heaven.
food for the feeding.
fresh butter from cream
caressing warm sourdough bread.
food for the feeding
means feeding the pot.
the life and times of our daily bread.
