Poem: "Kitchen Haiku" 

Kitchen Haiku

A large slotted spoon
separates "save" from "don't save"
like a dream catcher

Broccoli florets
like tiny green Bonsai plants—
internal wisdom

I will make a soup
selecting vegetables
whose flavors embrace

Spinach adds iron
to nutritious lentil soup;
Are we healthy yet?

The mug in your hand
awaits the next hot liquid;
The promise of warmth

Use a pot holder;
the blue enamel kettle
has a wire handle
