Wash Away Dirty Knives and Forks

from Nhojj Poetry Vol. 3 by Nhojj



Sometimes we outgrow our situations, and life let’s us know, it’s time to move on...


No need to tarry 
Intercepting crumbs and leftovers on their way to the floor 

You could be seated 
At your own table, small as it may be
Enjoying fresh delicacies from your own garden

I’ve seen the fruits of your labor
You’ve grown so much 
Mouth waters with praise
Kneaded into words like raisins with
Smiles of encouragement 

You were made for this
Bounty of blessings
Bounty of good-
Falling like rain
Inspiring this well of green leafy vegetables to sprout and flourish 

I’ll pass this gift onto you 
A rich seasoning for any stew
Observe what others say and do
Wait and let the tea brew and 
If another’s spirit be true 
One and one will equal more than two
Even as feelings turn blue
You’ll be grateful for this breathtaking view from this table where you sit and nourish body mind and soul...

So wash away the dirty knives and forks
They served well yesterday’s meal but 
Today is a new day and deserves a 
Clean set of wares...
