Love and Warm Toast

Love and Warm Toast


The breeze that blows across the field

Carries the scent of various wild grasses

Feral flowers and the cereal farmer’s gold




The miller with his cool and calloused fingers

Shall fashion and form

Each golden husk into breakfast




Reminding me of my mother as a young woman

Many years ago now but always

Smiling and smelling of love and warm toast

    A lovely write N.
    Meanwhile - Doh! I was in the wrong field. All I smelt was manure wafting across on the breeze. heehee.
    Just a fun thing - nothing deep or psychological to read into this, compared to your 'field'.

        A toast in a country bar always takes me back.
        Seldom does the landlord let me back.

        • Neville

          thank you DA

            A good feeling write wrapped with love!

            The first two stanzas remind me of my great grandparents...
            ...and the last one of my maternal grandmother...
            love and warmth...
            my security blanket!

              Thanks NEVILLE ! A very evocative title and a Perfect Pome ! This week Brother Boris has been touring the Hospitals and telling the Staff & Residents all they need is WARM BUTTERED TOAST ! Personally its a throwback to traditional fare in Public Schools & Oxford Colleges ~ and a bid to save the NHS 95% of its Catering Bill ! However I agree with him *Hot Buttered Toast* is indeed *CIBUS DEI !* TOAST without LOVE is just scorched bread ! Toast is a Generational thing ! WAGS make Toast ~ Mums make BETTER Toast ~ Grannies make the BEST Toast ~ AMEN.

              Blessings & Peace & Granny Toast
              Yours ANGELA & BRIAN ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก
