Today the Campus Ministry team was distributing free donuts in the lobby of our Academic Center. Happy students were entering and exiting with donuts in their hands and smiles on their faces. It doesn’t take much! I too enjoyed a cinnamon twist donut – my favorite!
A while back I wrote this poem about my preference for sweets:
Happy Easter – my favorite holiday
because of the Peeps –
squashy marshmallow chicks
bright yellow or magenta,
so much more tasty when stale.
My menu ran to
creamy sugar crusted Whitman’s floral mints
colored like pastel chalk,
shaped like fruit and flowers.
Also, cinnamon ,butter and sugar on toast,
I stubbed my big toe on the sidewalk as I ran
up the street to the popsicle truck.
Also, coconut slices colored like watermelons,
The grittiness is all.
I drank Hawaiian punch quenching,
sweet as rain,
hot tea with three teaspoons of sugar,
apricot nectar with a scoop of raspberry sherbet.
