TLC

This was written for dVerse, secret ingredient.

TLC

Christmas in the kitchen

flour integral décor

wide eyed children

“helping” to pour

a touch of this

a touch of that

pressing a candy kiss

in the cookie flat.

Grandmother kneads, rolls,

cajoles with a baked sweet

tosses in the bowls

the special ingredient

invisible to the eye.

“What’s that?” the children ask.

Her twinkling eyes reply

the secret for this task

“Is love!” they cry.
