Eating A Cookie

plate-of-cookiesEating a Cookie

I went to cupboard where the cookies are kept

I knew what was waiting for me there

As my fingers closed on the cookie

I felt the sensation of

The flour, sugar, chocolate and butter

Touching my skin

I sat in my chair

I closed my eyes

I let my hand drift first to my nose

I breathed in the smell of this confection

I tasted it first by its scent

let that come into my brain

And heighten my anticipation

Only then did I put the cookie to my lips

I nibbled with eyes closed

Letting the taste fill my mouth and my soul

Bite by small bite I tried

To let this cookie be the only thing

In my life that mattered

I pushed away intruding thoughts

Always coming back

To this gift of indulgent sweetness

Clasped between my fingers

Slowly the cookie grew smaller

And entered my being

Becoming a part of me

No longer just a cookie

But a pathway to something else

A state of being that celebrated

This moment

Unlike any other moment

When the cookie was gone

Its sweet gift lingered in my mouth

My hand was empty

But my soul was full.
