NaPoWriMo #6: On Bread

Leave a comment

breadToday’s prompt:  Food.    My goal:  to work with metaphor.

On Bread

Flour and salt
Sugar and water
Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Say what?
Yeast.
Living, lively little creatures.

Punch and knead,
throw and roll,
You cannot kill the the little beasts.
Until….
Fire!
A hellish end for the yeastie-beasties.

Life from Death,
Bread of Life,
They died for us.
Eat.
Now.
in remembrance.
