Went to a family reunion and had the most interesting mix of things. Family, a memorial and burial. People I had never met, food, food, food, four wheelers, tractors, WWII stories, sunsets and breezes, hugs and hope, so rich...
Like Chocolate Cake
Today was rich,
like dark chocolate
cake, that I did not want
but ate to be polite.
It had the taste of bittersweet cocoa
grief and glee, sanctuary and silliness.
Maybe too rich, too bitter,
too sweet, but scrumptious too.
