BREAKFAST

early morning rain
the dry sound inside the cabin
of oatmeal cooking

sweet and succulent this bowl
potent source of nourishment

flood waters crest
someone by the river puts water
in a coffee pot

during metamorphosis
ice morphs to liquid twilight

breakfast coffee
the excitement of an ocean
in my cup

in safe drinking water
colors of a rainbow

pale spring sunshine
spread over breakfast toast
quince jelly

golden-wedded couple
smiling at each other

beating egg yolks
two yellow butterflies
twist in the fog

excessive entanglement
the finest gossamer wings

threads of smoke
breakfast fires of neighbors
tied together

surprised, gracious welcoming
easy camaraderie
