Steamers for lunch by Raymond A. Foss

The words of the screen
“steamers for lunch, foggy day on the ocean”
so much cascading memory
flooding over me, seeing the image
of the water, the smell of the pot,
the taste of the clams, the lemon,
the melting butter, dripping in my beard
the taste of the drink, cold, washing them down
the slowing of my heart rate, the pace of my life
in the memory of these moments
savoring the simple pleasures
the little gifts of grace
given by the creator
all around us, to enjoy

“steamers for lunch, foggy day on the ocean – nice!”
