Bread of Oblation by Nalini Priyadarshni

 

 

A man shall not live by bread alone

 

We nurture the highest in each other

without depleting granary of our offering

we pour ourselves out to make room

for the best is yet to come.

 

Whorls of my fingers explore your grains

as I mix oil of first pressing with eggs and milk

knead the sweet and salty moments together

to bridge the gaps between knowing of our hearts

 

Like a sunny kitchen in an autumn noon

my smiles surround you with warm loving

beads of sultry passion leaven our beings

we rise to become more than sum of our parts

 

Loaf of our intimacy seeks wholesomeness

in the rigors of fire circles we draw

not an obstacle but path of our choosing

to expand and grow into bread of oblation 

 

Earthy loaf of our loving overruns

aromatics of the most seasoned wines

We nurture the highest in each other

without depleting granary of our offering
