Come break this bread,  feed me warmth of sharing.
Break the grip of solitude: toast our warm   pairing.
Pour out your heart,  pour out a loving cup of grace,
Smell the perfume of acceptance in this love-scented place.
Look at me with honest tender face  
Filled  with  devotion and   caring.

A shared breakfast  with thou my wife,
A true  spiritual occasion, a shared life;
No ritual miracle of water  changed into wine,
No last supper ;  first meal of the day  so fine. 
The miracle of existence, thine  and  mine,
Changed into life.

Waking  sun behind us washes warmth into our hands                                  
Joined daily  at the altar cloth  -  each strand’s                                
Spread  with love -  a celebration, a word, a glance. 
Our  eyes say it  all  askance:
A touch of fingertip   romance
In  a crumb brushed from a wedding band.       


(Written for the GOOD MORNING competition)

    Yikers! Most superb! Boy is she a lucky Tanya! and I really liked how the rhyme was subtle and the page layout too, giving it a masculine edge. Congrad's Light & Love
