Kitchen & Pantry



A pantry, a larder,
a closet of space,
a cupboard for treasures,
my most favourite place.
Enormous old thing,
that was once made of wood,
I remember it well,
by the stairs that it stood.

It housed some preserves,
that were all sealed in jars,
kettles and spices
and brother's tin cars.
There were charming containers;
like jugs and pound bags,
barrels of pickles & boxes of rags,
cartons of books, that I liked to read,
a basket of apples and
sacks filled with seeds.

My pine pantry pleasures
were such a delight,
that sometimes I stayed there,
long into the night,
to sort through the shelves,
wind up the rope,
or take down the boxes of
fresh smelling soap,
hang up the fresh flowers
or dig through the tools
for here in this cupboard
there weren't any rules.

One day as I searched,
I suddenly knew,
my future was clear and
the child in my grew.
The paint set & brushes,
just sitting around,
channelled my thoughts
with images abound.

The pantry of my mind,
with secrets untold,
on canvas as pictures,
began to unfold.
My inner expressions
were clearly set free
as my own special place,
helped me to be me!
