Yesterday’s Cake

The sun shines through
the kitchen window

Yesterday’s cake
sits on the counter
illuminated
in mornings light
a reminder of stories told
hugs and handshakes
and candles glowing

A single day
another year passes
ties are renewed
bonds are strengthened
no futures told
no headlines solved
no revelations divulged

A cup of afternoon coffee
a slice of chocolate cake
white frosting brimming
a reminiscence sigh
one more day
of guilt free deserts
and warming thoughts
of yesterday’s cake
