Thanksgiving

Rugged fingertips
parting the mound of flour
coaxing in eggs and salt
calloused hands
kneading, rolling
trimming
filling round morsels
each one unique
as I watched
already satiated
long before eating
grandmom’s holiday ravioli

Morning prayer



Enough
  the noise
  of things created
  by clever creatures

Enough
   the din
   the incessant hum
 
Enough
  chatter
  masquerading as conversation

Enough
    electron-mediated images
    prancing about
    on a screen
    that never sleeps

Peace

Be still
