waiting for the thaw


snow melting on the roof
runs down the side of the window frame
my purple orchid is re-blooming


laid out on the table
meager offerings for a small feast
a red mug fragrant with jasmine tea
one thick slice of homemade cornbread
dabs of sweet butter and jam


searching for words, today a poet’s ink
flows with hesitation.
