Capturing the holidays

Christmas eve
polenta and mushrooms
watercress salad and freshly baked bread
children who tower above me
a missing husband who is missed

Christmas morning
waffles, fruit divided into three bowls
so we all get some
otherwise it will all disappear into one mouth
we know who it is
presents of calendars of poems
pie server, agave, wine, an electric mixer
to replace the one from my first marriage,
the one that finally broke, was it the marriage or
the mixer
this new one,  sleek aqua body
completely redesigned beaters silently whip
the egg whites
I was amazed at their efficiency.
