picking in the fields
tasting along the way
“strawberry fields is anywhere you want to go.”
just happened upon this while grocery shopping
and based up the name and descriptors
i have absolutely no idea what it actually is.
things that i do know about it:
corn plays some sort of role
it is very yellow
corn can dance or do magic.
things i do not know about it:
is it animal, mineral or vegetable?
“truth is ever to be found in simplicity,
and not in the multiplicity and confusion of things.”
when out for a night
at a wonderful irish pub
with warm company, warm food, and a warm fireplace
we decided to make the crazy leap
to ask for bread
and were looking forward
to a warm basket overflowing
with fresh, crusty bread
image our surprise
when a single 6-inch slice of soda bread
arrived on tiny plate
to be shared between us
we stared at it for a minute
looked at each other
we were able to eat the whole thing.
“if thou tastest a crust of bread, thou tastest all the stars and all the heavens.”
