Preparing Tea

“How was your day?” he asks,

His voice pitches like a hay fork,

tilting up and then plummeting.

The art of conversation is practised

as he peels potatoes for mash

and I slice onions.

Recounts thread across the kitchen bench.

 

The day’s long minutes reduced to mere

stand out events, good and bad.

 

May time stand still

in the beauty of this moment.
