Joy in Simplicity

Dishrag draped over the kitchen tap

Waiting for another

Caressing of food encrusted dishes.

Stainless steel sink shining

After bathing the cooking pots.

And to think, when the dishwasher ran,

Cleaning up was a dirty chore,

But with hot soapy water in

A deep hand basin,

Performing ballet with the hands,

And after good food and

With happy thoughts

It’s a pure blessing.
