As I knead the dough in the early morning …

 

As I knead the dough in the early morning…

… Doing the same gesture on a stone slab of pale color, I look up and see the bend where the two rivers meet.

I continue to work the dough, lifting a few strands of hair from my forehead with the back of my hand. Small particles of flour float in the air; as the sun rises, they turn into gold.

The house is still asleep. I so enjoy this moment of solitude, working the dough to the rhythm of the river.

I shape the dough into small sunshines, and place them in the clay oven.

The aroma of bread will be the same a few millennia from now, and maybe, just maybe, someone will be thinking of me as they knead the dough in the early morning.

Kenza.

  1. This is so tender. It touches my heart like a rose petal, a ray of sunshine and a single dew drop. Thank you for this offering of light and simplicity to our world. Prayers for a beautiful day for you – and blessed bread too. 🙂
