Happy Poetry Friday!
If you know me, you might know that I am a big fan of Mary Oliver. One of my favorite poems of hers is “Freshen the Flowers, She Said” that appears in Why I Wake Early. That poem inspired the following which I am also using for #PoemsofPresence on Twitter.
While Making the Muffins
I slice through the waxy lemon rind,
releasing a burst of pungent perfume.
Squeezing goodness into the dough,
a drop of sweet-tart nectar
falls on my finger –
a taste of summer.
