even towels can be beautiful

even towels can be beautiful

He has taught me
to put wet towels
under the cutting boards,
to ensure they do not slip.

"I don't want you to cut yourself,"
he told me,
his face a call of caring.

Later in the day,
I turned around to chop something
and saw this beauty.

Shauna - how lovely to see you are writing such beautiful things. I've followed you gluten-free writings for some time, and now these! A joy to read.

Thank you, Lucy. These ones come from no other impetus than to remember, to be alive.

It's lovely to know you are out there.
