Fluffy white flour Once golden fields of wheat Now, swirled in a bowl Playfully becoming Chocolate chip cookies A mixture of elements of Earth and Life Sodium Chloride – Sea salt from Spain Sodium bicarbonate – Baking Soda from Indiana Oregon eggs, Washington butter San Francisco chocolate Hawaiian sugar Vanilla, all the way From Madagascar All gathered and assembled here Now, in an Idaho kitchen Carefully measured, just so Joined both physically and chemically Just now in this moment Becoming something new, a Communal Creation A joyful seed Created by God Eons ago, micro evolves Through natural selection Set in motion by our Creator Then cultivated Generation after generation Just so Now, a simple cookie, offered A humble gift of Gratitude and Thanksgiving
