Break fast


Bustle of domestic.

Yellow curtains

pain the countertops.

Smooth butter sunlight

and calm,

like warm cream.

Eggs collected early,

now sizzle in the pan.

Coffee, bacon, toast,

and olfactory seance

welcoming all spirits.

Practiced and efficient,

each movement purposeful.

An engineer at work,

the mission, satiating.

A blissful morning.

Rare moments

of peace in this world.

Pour a cup

and take them as they come.

She beams.

The Sun does not compare.

Give thanks

and mean it fully.
