MAGPIE...Prompt #134


                                              BREAKFAST/ 1921/ Fernand Leger



THANK YOU, Tess, for Magpie Tales...


GOOD MORNING

Daily sacrament:
a splash of perfume
on my hair,
twisting it into strands of silk,
braided purple band,
overstretched,
tying back loose ends
from yesterday.

Only then can I toast sun-up,
trace my thumb along
the facets of my glass,
yet still keep in mind the taste
of last night's Rose`.

This morning,
just Crayola orange will do,
juice squeezed and poured
from dimpled globes
into dowry cristallo,
sweetening the essence
of days gone by,
letting today arise
with a leap of intent.

It was a good night. It was good wine. it is a good morning. You let us get up on the right side of the bed in this poem, especially capped with the last line. I felt pleased and content!!

Crayola orange definitely has enough intensity to jump start the day and kick it into gear. I love your poem here Lyn, and totally identified with the morning orientation. Thank you for sharing.
