Welcome to the Cafe
walls to hang art, open mics
for poetry and songs.
Here we honor our elders, shoot on sight
anyone uttering the words senior citizen.
We dance, we love our bodies,
spend a lot of time on the floor
seeing the world through a child's eye.
We work hard for peace and the planet.
If you have a love song to the earth
or a peace poem, send it to me
if you like, and I'll find room for it.
Here we celebrate food.
Believe in the Slow Food Movement.
Specialize in Southwestern and recipes
like your grandma used to make.
Send a recipe now and then, especially
if it has lots of garlic in it.
Tell me what books you're reading,
what music you're listening to,
what's your passion.
Poet Mary Oliver says: "be ignited or be gone."
What ignites you?
Just getting started, but open 24/7.
Stop by and bring your friends.
