Comfort cup

Lost in a torrent of pain
My hands
Placed around a paper cup
Palms register warmth
Mind settles, finds focus
An island of comfort in
Oceanic grief

 

Jumbled inside are vegetables, broth
Earth brown lentils
Tangled colours, delicious odours
A cook’s care
Dip my spoon
Savour
A tentative smile

 

I am nourished

 

A serene moment
Contained
In a cup of soup
Remembered
Revisited
An island of comfort in
Oceanic grief
