My Queen

image: Michael Sowa, from The Little King

My Queen holds the sugar
while I hold the cinnamon.
We’re the perfect pairing
in breakfast’s kitchen.
She hasn’t arrived yet,
no pomp and circumstance,
she enters quietly with
delicate, sweet decorum.
A shake of us both
upon the
toast, serves it up sweet
for that perfect treat.

  3. You can take the simple of pleasures and make it more pleasurable by crafting words to help us notice the small, but important details that make up a satisfying life. Beautiful!

  9. Oh my goodness I love this, Gayle! I wrote it down, if you don’tmind, to share with my Grandchildren. They love being read to and I have not even started with poetry, yet. I also like the illustration chosen for this.

  10. I’m so honored that you would want to share this with your grandchildren, Leslie–thank you. The photo was a prompt to write something about and this is what came up for me.

    I hope the grandchildren have fun with the poem!

  12. Yes a clever take on the theme. I recognise it but I take neither cinnamon nor sugar in my coffee. I like just coffee and a small amount of milky froth :).

    • Yes, it’s a new one. WordPress was retiring my theme and replacing it with this one–so I changed to this new one called “Dusk to Dawn”. If you scroll up and down, you’ll see that it changes from dark blue to a golden yellow color–dusk to dawn. I like the font and easy reading of this one too. Thanks for noticing!

      Hugs,
      Gayle
