Object Lesson (#12 NaPoWriMo 2019)

Wooden Implement.jpg

Objects demonstrate the lesson.
Dull love and significant loss.
Behind the exercise,
Glimpse eternal.

Object lesson:
Dull wooden spatula.
Significant wedding ring.
Passion enough for a poem?

True, I do love the spatula:
Flat end, no scoop, breaking,
Scooping, stirring, sampling,
Stir fry, saute, simmer, serve.

I won’t give away my heart.
The ring remains.
I house whole worlds,
Capacious room for spatulas and rings.

Object Lesson: Love, infinite and all.
