Soup is a Prayer

Soup is a prayer
when your alarm clock rouses you from a deep slumber
and your feet hit the cold floor
because you forgot to pack your favorite pair of slippers,
you take a pilgrimage to the kitchen
and thank God for providing the hot
aroma, steam rising from the pot
and nourishment from your bowl.

Until the end of your life
you will be grateful for
ice cream,
sunsets over the ocean,
island time,
writing retreats,
and rhinoceroses.
