Poetry Pause: Welcome

August 21, 2010

Found this gem in Grub: Ideas for an Urban Organic Kitchen.  Enjoy!

By the way, what do you think of the new blog format?

Welcome

by Suheir Hammad

my generosity is not steaming

on the table and waiting

for you before you even know you want it

open hearted

come to my house friend you

will find my offering still simmering

i have not yet figured out what

you need and your tastes are a mystery still

to me

i will wait for you to enter

my kitchen and once here

you can let me know what you like

sweet and slow

pepper and stirred

then we can share in this gift together

both of us giving

both of us receiving

open handed
