Christmas Roulade

rolled in this meringue:

apples, mascarpone cream,

burnt honey. ’20.

baked in this Roulade:

my student’s home-raised hen eggs

ready to be whipped

folded in this bake:

some precious moments of peace

so hard sought, well earned

masked in this meringue:

a year of bittersweet loss

melted into joy
