Kitchen Love By Jane Elizabeth Yarnell

Kitchen Love

I wish you a kitchen kind of love.
I wish you love that lingers, just a moment more —
love that makes another cup of tea as cover for five more minutes of chat.

I wish you love that sits on counters, dangles feet
and talks about everything and nothing while the room fills
with carmel sugar.

I wish you the warmth of the oven while
rain lashes the windows.
I wish you the kind of love
that feeds you.

I wish you a love deep enough for creation.
