Artisan Bread Crafted Crusty Shapes





Fresh aroma fills the room
artisan bread kneaded
& crafted with loving hands
a delectable  orb with a star

rising in the cozy warmth
forming a brown crusty shell
protecting the inner lining
soft white fluffy clouds

gently breaking the bread
dipping my thoughts into
olive oil  & flavored herbs
tasting the richness of life

taking a small bite, I offer
you a fleshy piece of my heart
leaving crumbs in the journey
to help you find your way

closing my eyes,  I wonder
where you are in the world
a star shining oh so bright
I make a wish, just for you

  3. I wish I may, I wish I might say grace for the bread stars that are grounded, the stars we pray on, then devour; you really got me going with this one, I, too, like that last stanza, but see hope not despair within.

    1. Hi Brian,

      Offering a piece of one's heart is a great gift and yes, I would leave a path so others might find their way in the journey of life.

  5. A path to follow with the crumbs laid out one by one, but the bread itself would kill me haha

    1. Well, just follow the path your heart knows the way you don't have to actually eat the bread, I wouldn't want my light hearted fool to become ill.

  6. This bread looks lovely and sounds very tasty with its olive oil and flavored herbs. I like how you also used it as a metaphor for what you are ready to offer.

  16. Bread becomes our very flesh - a symbolism which does not grow old... I love what you made of it, the crumbs marking the way...

  17. Hi Truedessa,

    Did I ever mention that you are one of Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar's favourite pawets, sorry, poets?

    Your poem is something I kneaded right now. I've been loafing around too much. I'm on a roll and I thank you for your bread poem :)

  18. Bread is so essential and I like the way you used the crumbs, a fairy tale riff on the theme, a way to follow and to be followed.
