Fragrant Potatoes

Fragrant Potatoes

Soup for children
chained in bed
chopped vegetables
fragrant potatoes.

It's bitter cold with wind chill and snow on the ground. I wake before dawn and decide to make vegetable soup. I put hands to my face and drink in the earthy fragrance of fresh cut potatoes. I relish the aroma till it fades. I think of a mother making soup. I think of children drinking in fragrant potatoes.


  1. Mmmm, vegie soup. In three or four months I will be enjoying it too.

  2. Hi Sue, thanks the thirteen children chained up in California really affected me.


I love suggestions, questions, critiques, thanks for your comment
