Scalloped Potatoes

Poems From The Porch

I take a bite of this moment

and savor its richness,

the gift of life here and now.

Together we sit around this table.

All are welcome and everyone belongs.

secular humanist



fundamentalist and liberal

religion of every flavor

spiritual, but not religious







each chair holding a valid position

“Who created the table and chairs

and the bodies sitting in them?”

I wonder.

Who is the Author of our feast?

To some who are seated,

this question is uninteresting and irrelevant.

While others think that they know

the answer for all.

Perhaps we are just meant to

enjoy the banquet together,

in gratitude and appreciation,

until the day comes

when we must exit the restaurant

for a destination unknown.

Until then,

pass the potatoes, please.
