Title: Food for the Gods

Deep in a warm bowl flours mix -
snow white, dappled grain.
Bubbling yeast rises to its task.
Ploughing fingers twist, turn,
fashioning silken dough,
thumbed upon the wooden board
into a fragrant loaf
to be eaten with butter,
dribbled with honey.
A crunchy crust
enclosing soft delight.
Food for the Gods,
for you, for me,
and best of all -
I made it.
