I entered her kitchen
on a dark cold night
looking only for food.
But what I found was a feast
of understanding and affection.
Delicious lips tasted my despair.
Strong arms soothed bitter wounds.
My tear-stained heart nourished and healed,
the darkness disappeared.
At her table, she fed me love.
Peter Blau believes everyone has a story to tell and in his teaching he invites students to tell those stories with their writing. His work has been featured in 50-Words as well as Academy of the Heart and Mind, Paragraph Plant, and Five-Minute Lit. To Peter, writing is more than just a means to an end. It is the end in itself.
