Ah, the magickal kitchen
sacred space for blending the elements
dry & liquid
frothy & whipped
Tools of steel, plastic, wood and glass
--modern alchemical marvels--
the implements for destruction and creation
powered by machine or human sweat
Separate and put back together
something original or traditional,
undiscovered or familiar
An aura of tastes, smells, sounds and textures permeate us
earthy and pungent
sharp and smooth
knives scraping
the clatter of metal upon metal
the crackling of roasting meat
the sizzle of the frying pan
the powdered residue of flour
the grit of salt and sugar
--all mark the boundary of the circle
As each dish is tempered by heat or cold.
Measured against intention
the cooperation of oft times disparate ingredients
come together
to feed our hungry soul.
