(I am elated)
I hope you brought your appetite!
Let me look at you.
Oh, what a beautiful sight!
Let me take your bag.
Hope it’s light to carry and free of worries.
Have a seat,
next to my orange tree,
under swaying bulbs burst from flowers, fragrant.
There’s a chill in the air… do you feel it?
A desert breeze carrying the scent of desert sage
and remnants of jasmine… do you smell it?
Let me hold you tight
Let me breathe you in
Let me fetch you some hot tea
with honey and a lemon squeeze.
Let’s skip the fuss and start with dessert first, shall we?
A slice of warm apple pie
(fresh from the oven).
You timed that just right!
My grandma’s recipe slightly modified –
sprinkled with jazz and infused with my love.
You don’t have to say a word
You don’t have to prove your worth
You don’t have to try
You just need to be
You are welcome
next to my sacred
Thank you for visiting, reading, and listening. Be well. 💗 Michele
