The Soup

All those times she took out her tablecloth and spread it
'O so gently'
kept me coming back.
It was her soup I'd see.
The celery bits I'd act.

A broth to be tapped
of oil not strewn.
As thick as the sun
but thin to the spoon.

With bowls like skirts
defending their space.
on modest placemats
marked for grace.

Down splendored chairs
of darkened walnut
My eyes remember
The meal; a moment.

And on her face
her smile and grace
Remind me of
A better place.

    A splendid poem, Trevor. Great imagery. Simile and metaphor too. Good job of putting this together.

    Thanks Cona. I wrote this about a girlfriend who had me over for soup. LOL For such a simple meal, she made me feel at home. Thanks for your kind words Cona.
