Working up an appetite



she thinks of breakfast-
turning the pancakes once in the pan, 
firmly golden with melting butter and 
splattered blueberries-     

then coffee, steaming hot  
beside orange juice & heavy maple 
syrup on the small wooden table-

outside, the trees are donning 
aprons, scooping each dew drop,
and prick of warming light-     
eager to rouse from winter's embrace- 

stirring in bedsheets,  
refreshed by her sleep, she runs
her fingers lightly over his still-sleepy frame,
soft in the breathing, firm in the admiration- 

she strikes a match, 
rekindling faith in beginnings,    
with each caress, a bud opens like spring, 
seeking the rain & sky-bursting-joy-  

he loves her hunger in the morning.

  14. "prick of warming light... with each caress, a bud opens like spring, seeking the rain & sky-bursting-joy... he loves her hunger in the morning.

    Very clever, naturally reflective and delicately erotic, Grace - beautifully achieved and a delight to read.

  15. "soft in the breathing, firm in the admiration-
    she strikes a match, "

    I know you put a break in there, but for me that read as all one very definite visual.

  22. I really, I don't know Heaven, through the delicious smells and lovely sounding food I get vibes of a new beginning, of life starting again from this and I think that's what makes it so incredibly special, absolutely beautiful.

  27. Love how fluently you apply metaphor, it adds a sort of freshness to the sensuality of your poem. Very nice :) I miss mornings like this. (I prefer waffles though, more crunchy ~_^)
