baking brownies

feeling special

feeling useful

reaching for a better balance of being


longing for sweetness

the remembrance of succor

the comfort of many hands receiving

special delight

all blessed together

shared with everyone


buttery chocolate richness

from the oven of a loving heart








a spot of light in the dark

a mark of passing,

a party flavor,

a warm goodness,

lifting sprits,

lifting blood sugars,

lifting the boredom that permeates the distances between loves.


It’s not the stars our hearts long for

Or the far off distant clouds of angels,

It’s the aroma of personalized sweetness shared all around

to remind us of our truest home

in giving and joy and plenty.
