Fireside Winter


She held me
in warm hands
the same way

French toast
holds butter

Leaves outside
trembled and

Maple ran
to ground
in October

in South Dakota

I love the way you described her holding you like "French toast holds butter". It speaks volumes :-) Just a beautiful, nostalgic write that must have held very fond memories. Touched the old heart strings.

I'm honoured to know you too, Einstein.
This makes me feel toasty(pun totally intended!), as if I am wrapped up in autumn's security blanket...
Perfectly worded! Your metaphors are top notch(as always)....:)
The poem makes me think about soft gold- brown toffies, about melting butter, mellow sunshine, chocolate syrup, about the comfort of home, and loved ones.
Truly lovely! :) In my library! :)

I found this on a blustery winter morning after shovelling through several feet of snow. My wood stove now warms me as I whisk the eggs and milk for my French Toast! Beautifully written!
