dumplings

dumplings
are my favorite food
and my mum always says
they are easy to make
and good to taste

knead the dough thoroughly
as if they enjoy the massage
and then mix with
the meat and vegetables
also my favorites

some spices are added
to suit the taste
oil, salt, soy sauce and vinegar
as necessary in them
as a mother’s indispensable acts
are for her lovely children

last fill with stuffing inside
watch the dumplings boil
in the pot
like dancers
standing side by side

smell them
taste them
delicious
and the flavor of love
deep inside

dumplings are easy
but love is hard
somehow though
they taste the same
