A soup poem

Basic Soup

Start at sunrise
in the CrockPot
soak up the patience of a day
let the butter
and garlic get
to know each other
get acquainted
with the holy mirepoix
add beans
Simon & Garfunkel spices
plus others. At sunset
turn the dial to Warm
Serve in darkness.

‘A Map for Samwell Tarley’

A Map for Samwell Tarley


The hills and rivers remain. That is all the map you need.

The scraps of lands where others have traveled ~ you will journey

Past all that. Bring your pen.

Roots will trip you

Ravens will fail you

You will mislay your bundle looking for light

Forward you face each long mile

When you can’t walk, crawl

When crawling fails, sit, not quite quiet

Fill in more of the map
