Joyful Repetition: a class exercise

Thanksgiving

I am cooking

I am a kitchen, steamy and hot

I am cranberry relish simmering on the stove the night before

I am turkey in the oven, basted every thirty minutes

I am sweet potatoes smashed with salt, pepper, and a little butter

I am my children bickering in the living room

I am laughter after dinner over black coffee or green tea or red apple cider

I am pumpkin pie piled with whipped cream

I am taking food and turning it into love

I am celebrating my family

This was written as part of a creative writing class I took Fall 2020.
