February 23rd

Slick-slack
chip-chop
vegetables on
the chopping block.

Red potatoes,
brown rice,
green celery
will sure taste nice.

Boil, boil,
till it’s hot
Stone soup
in my pot.

Herbs rising
out of steam,
home-cooked smells
eating clean.

It’s broth
keeps me warm
while nutrients
help the body transform.
