fried eggs

A Morning Recipe

the pot warmed,
just boiled water
no longer a stranger
to tea leaves stirred
into the morning.

rain drenches half truths into the weather report, clouds squeezed thin of bright clarity,

a drift of milk
gentle on the brim,
sipped from a china cup
it’s a comfort scent
like toasting bread.

starlings have returned, tearing the grass, beaks of knives and forks at tender worms,

butter and black iron
two eggs puddle
in shimmering heat
the scent is hard as
a thin parsed smile.

a two egg morning, and there’s a snail climbing up and across the window

  1. Quiet morning here, Misky, & I noticed the return of a couple of summerbirds, hangin out in the newly almost-budding dwarf maple out on the backyard crest. I spotted them as I was halfway through my breakfast (leftover) Quiche. Your work’s delectable. Thanks.

  2. I love how the kitchen morning scenes are broken by the nature’s narrative from the rain, starlings and the snail. Admiring those beaks of knives and for, and the 2 egg morning.

  3. This is absolutely stunning, Misky! I especially love; “a drift of milk gentle on the brim, sipped from a china cup, it’s a comfort scent like toasting bread.” 😀 Thank you so much for the lovely prompt. ❤️❤️

    This is brilliant, particularly the last two lines (I’m an egg man)..JIM

  5. Misky, I like the telling of your thoughts while making a nice two-page breakfast.
    I made two one-egg breakfasts yesterday. I make a 55-second-cook egg; crack the egg open into a two to three diameter greased microwave okay bowl, stir a couple of whisks, into the microwave cover with a small paper towel, secure the towel, cook time 55 seconds at 70% power, remove and eat.
    So you see there isn’t much time for thought, instead ready the toast, strawberry jam, pour coffee, etc.
    I write a lot, both blogs, about food. Pictures to. A quick search for “odes” has ones for the Quince and a Red Tomatato. I’ll do my thought while preparation next, thank you for the idea.
