Churn

Life is full of meaning
the way new milk is rich with fat.
Brigid, goddess of dairymaids and poets,
let my pen become the churn
agitating experience
until the fresh sweet butter
of wisdom coalesces
giving us something
to spread across our bread
softening the crusty edges of our days
filling us with the savor that sustains.
