In the Details: Bread

"Simple" and "easy" are not the same.

This poem is dedicated to my lovely friend Jamie, who lives in Stratford, though we hardly see each other.

Bread

Bread is as
Simple to
Make
As a friendship.
Isn't it
Just those few
Common ingredients?

Salt
Flour
Water
Yeast 

Just as easy as

Attention
Patience
Time
Room to grow.
