D is for… Diner

(Pssst… new here? Welcome to Alphabet Salad! For background on how and why I got involved in both NaPoWriMo and the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, check out this post… and, if you’d like to catch up on my progress to date, my challenge posts are tagged with Poetry from A to Z. Glad you stopped by, and hope you’ll return!)

Blogging from A to Z April (2010) Challenge - D

You’re here.

sidewalk greeting:
bowl brimming with fresh water
plastic bucket stocked with crunchy biscuits
“for our four-legged friends”

step inside, look and see
cheery yellow walls the texture of scrambled eggs
tables brightly set with lime-green placemats
shining cutlery wrapped in waffle-weave dishcloth napkins

choose a seat, listen and hear
the fragrant sizzle of frying bacon
an eclectic collection of tunes that span the decades
and laughter… always laughter

sit back, take it all in
ear-to-ear smiles, freely distributed
delicious food, proudly presented
“welcome to my kitchen” emblazoned on the wall

and realize, suddenly
with the joy of contented warmth

You’re home.
