Today's poem is by Sally Stewart Mohney


Salvation can finally come
as simply as lighting heat
in an early kitchen.

You enter, chilly in slippers
start several small fires
to find your way.

Coffee, chimney,
bacon, then toast.

Setting out white cups,
bowls, plates—a creamer,
pewter spoons.

Light pours in, as

pale blue mercy
