Stanzas and Sayings

70…on being a goddess


goddess of homefire

is elegantly and modestly


no specks assail her


i approach the stove

with  my bucket of wood

just chopped

my mucky gloves

and my plastic apron

that says



my son watches


a grown man

who cannot speak

and will never light a fire


he smiles a smile

brighter than a flame

warmer than a hearth


today i am a goddess
