Meet us for breakfast – Lord’s Prayer New Year 2013

First Day –
First Light:
Diffuse your newness
through mizzled mornings;
butter us up
between the stale crusts
lidding the year’s loaf;
with good fat and salt
grease our mealy crumb.
Make us make the meals go round;
make us make another round.
Make us grain but not grist.
With shine, rain, meet us;
not least for breakfast.
Amen.
