Yogurt and Honey  

I begin the day buying yogurt in a small favorite grocery store.
Not pizza, nor gatorade.

although they are imported from afar and grown in monocultures.
Attract fruit flies in August.

locally grown with rainwater. I ate all the farmer's peaches alone
stacking them by the railroad tracks.

rainwater, tap water, distilled water, carbonated water, spring water--
deep gulps, infinite sips.

in moderation, or not, unsalted, raw, replacing chips. His bowl
of filberts, almonds, walnuts quiet weekday mornings.

Edible plant parts--
roots, leaves, stems, flowers, fruit. In olive oil
or butter.

look online how best to prepare. Baked or fried. With a little
fish or meat.

Tea and honey,
play and prayer. Swimming and running,
talking quietly.

Bread's possible as the Bible. Each is liable
to bloat your thoughts.

Wine and dandelions.
Dandelion wine's Ray Bradbury's story. Cans in a pantry, books on a shelf
to the end of time.

we used to call spaghetti, never noodles. I wonder if I can remember how to make
grandma's sauce.

cherry, grape. Grab God's eye
going by.

Very creative!
Nicely done! I admired how you kept alternating between personal facts and facts with the first few stanzas and then talked about God and prayer and those moments in life that create an atmosphere of family environment. I particularly enjoyed the whole stanza 1 personal stanza 2 facts stanza 3 personal stanza 4 fact flow. It was quite creative.
