Biggest difficulty

I had a series of dreams last night.  Interspersed were periods of wakefulness during which I worried about how I would drink my coffee this morning.  Yes, really.  I awakened to find the Sunday story from  A reflection on the broken pieces.  Somehow just what I needed to hear.

The biggest difficulty
This morning
Is a lack of milk or cream
For my coffee.
So I eat yogurt
In tandem
With sips of coffee.
Now I will go to church
To hear about                    
The feeding of the five thousand,
The twelve baskets
Of broken pieces
Left over.
