basil & dill













this culinary corner of shadows & light
retro mystique
tired, warm, beautiful
music drifts across stainless bowls
pinchings of herbs
hand-carved spoon measures
gathering in ...
" and we'll learn, learn, learn ... wait your turn , turn, turn "
yellow-finch-bluejay-white-birch sun shines thru the window
open to pressure & heat ..
heat .
cooking
boiling sweet baby potatoes
golden & red
slicing, dicing
present
intently being ...
celery
garden warm ;
basil
dill
parsley &
chives
adding
blending
absorbed in this simple measure
( it's a summer salad for fuck-sake! )
and
suddenly you are behind me
breaking into my now. .
solid yet veiled
strong & just
heat rolling
eyes close,
leaning into the smell of basil & dill
garden & green
I fall
deeper
against the between
breathing in, breathing out
basil & dill
melt my moon & tend this sun
blended with the shadows of this day
once more tired and beautiful
and mine
basil & dill
