A Spoonful

"

A spoonful.
Sugar.
Honey,
A spoonful of love
Both sweet and soothes the soul
Morning bowl; the glass half full.


The painting that'd depict nourishment,
Instead of incidents souring mouths.
Eyes.
A spoonful of hope.
A spoonful of time.
Close.


Though we've said our grace
Its mostly just a taste
Night peace or dreams when half awake.
Seeds, roots, growth, and belief,
A spoonful of nature,
A spoonful of history.

A spoonful of words.
A spoonful.

I love the juxtaposition of things actually measurable in spoonfuls with things that are not, but are often described as so. Very optimistic piece. Very well written! I like the contrast it seems to have with Salvador Dali's painting you included. Dali's art is so distorted and distopian. Your pairing of such a hopeful poem with his art seems to say there is always light as the end of the tunnel, however dark.

Truly an excellent poem!

Wonderful use of words my friend.
"A spoonful of nature,
A spoonful of history.
A spoonful of words.
A spoonful."
I liked the above lines a lot. Thank you Ty for sharing the outstanding poetry.

This is a creative way to show instead of tell how a rambling or jittery mind will stop & taste a little of this or a little of that. Since I'm old, I see this as being the way memories or nostalgia come in little sips. The "spoonful" idea is clever & perfect to symbolize many of our sensory experiences in life. Thanks to Juliespenhere for read requesting me on your poem (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
