Love and Abandonment

 
On Friday a Len Castle platter caught my eye
displayed in a Museum cabinet.
 
            I remembered
 
how it was to hold and use such a dish
to cook with love and abandonment.
 
Suddenly on Wednesday you looked out at me
from a gold frame on a sideboard
 
            and I remembered
            love and abandonment
 
I lost my Len Castle
and you were borrowed
