Break the Fast

Strawberry preserves
pool in muffin crypts
trickle down chin
and cracked shells
drip sunshine
scrambled joy
browned and peppered
just right with
a side of java
watch the corn grow
taste the honeyed breeze
break the fast.

Marvelous. Makes me feel like eating a buttered and jammed English muffin RIGHT NOW. :)

I love this poem! It makes me happy...wish I read it before breakfast this morning. It would have primed me for a feast!
