I could keep on writing this poem that came to mind this morning. There are many stories that could be told if kitchen cupboards could speak. I share with you just one kitchen story, yours is probably similar. Perhaps not with peaches but nectarines or strawberries. The kitchen is definitely the center of the home, the beating heart of the family.

Kitchen Fight by J.G. McGlothern


Amidst the pouring of the milk

The toasting of the bread

The slicing of the peach

Comes the yelling.

He shouts

I try not to

He cries

I hold out my arms.

Together we collapse

On the kitchen floor.

I pick up his sixty pound body

All brown like a coffee bean

From the kiss of summer.

After a long embrace

Together we spread the butter

Get out the spoons

Eating and loving in silence

We will be here again

Amidst milk and tears

Toast and peaches

Always circling back to the love

That got us here in the first place.
