Bread

Bread,

it sits on the counter

wheat bread

cinnamon raisin

white rolls

gluten 

gluten free

low fat

high fiber

heart healthy,

Bread

the staff of life

feeding 

nourishing

slathered with butter

toasted golden 

jelly’s 

jams

strawberry

grape

cover the bread.

Bread

vast acres of wheat

swaying 

as the breeze passes

under the sun

kernels

ripen

machines reap

gathering 

into the barn

crushed

pulverized

mixed

baked

sold

into our bodies

feeding

Bread

broken and shared

Bread 

the gift of God

Bread

manna

life

in the desert

we inhabit.
