A Matter of Taste

Which is better to hoard crumbs or share a feast?

The answer may seem simple,
but when it comes to life,
appetites can be deceiving in a world ruled by our stomachs.

The taste for what we believe is ours
Seems sweet for a while
But is not great enough to sustain
and so to celebrate its possession
Only seeks to make us and our world smaller.

The taste for what we know to be blessing
Is the nectar of our souls
Nourishes us in its abundance
And so to celebrate its provision
Only seeks to free us to receive
and bless us give

It’s a matter of taste.
