a
simple meal
french toast feast

magic potion mixture
something special
synthesis

every
sunday morning
just after church

savory
simmering serenade
cinnamon surround clouds

we
sit together
heaven earth bound

mom’s
cooking sings
fulfilling happiness happens

solo
recollecting reverie
flipping french toast

  1. Sweet poem and memories. The first stanza is striking in its minimal simplicity, almost reductive but solid.

    My memories of family Sunday after-church french toast is more frantic!

    Oh, I love this poem! My sister made gourmet French toast when the family last visited, and it was delicious. I like how you end the poem with the flipping. And that photo is so eye-catching!

  3. Lovely poem! Oh does that bring back the memories– my mom also used to make French toast on Sundays, while my dad put on the Brandenburg Concertos in the background. And yes, the cinnamon!
