Celestial succulent

One of my favorite succulents enhanced through the app Circular.  Isn't she downright celestial? What's celestial in the kitchen?  Salt, though I'm not sure why.  The smell of roasting garlic with tomatoes with a splash of olive oil and pepper.  Bread baking, for sure.

In poetry, what's celestial?  A listening audience -- that's a given.

  1. Archival in your straw hat over a picture you are drawing
    you, bending over the oven to check the pizza

    leaning back to look at it, an awakening and just in time
    as the waves wash over all the winters
    describing silences that test us

    let all days subscribe to this one sea temporarily

    a force of wills alter these kinds of plans
    scoffing at a hideous fate
    the horses scare off the intruders

    and you, yes you, riding as if the afternoon depended on it
    a carriage that puts all previous fears to rest
