Cutting Through

serrated knife

Bread knife
serrated blade
sometimes
these bumps
cut through better
than a smooth edge

Slices of life
ready for the taking
after we cut
into manageable bites.
I am not asking that
life be without bumps
but rather that I have
the force and wisdom
to cut through to the
nugget of Being within.

    “… the force and wisdom to cut through” … Ah yes, we all need both, for there is much to penetrate on this road called life! Love the bread knife imagery, Pat. ❤

      Oh, no! Not another way to enjoy Nutella. It looks too good. I will not say “thanks” for tempting me, but of course, I will make it next time I have company and am sure it will not stay here afterwards. big hugs, pat

      Can not imagine not liking Nutella. It always intrigues me when someone does not like to eat something I love. How can our sense of taste vary so much? So interesting. Can I have your share? I will trade you for all bitter foods which Brazilians seem to love, especially bitter greens. Yuck! hugs and laughter coming your way! pat
