CHILLY SUNDAY MORNING

CHILLY SUNDAY MORNING

A Poem by jeannemarie coulter


CHILLY SUNDAY MORNING

cold wine fingers shiver through the blue hour sky
slip through the eastern window eyes of my bedroom
to rainbow shatter inside the crystals and mist on my eyelids...

morning arrives without vengeance
stirring the cauldron of my dreams,
a morning dove singing like an angel
 in the lilac bush outside...
it is time to get up.
it is a biscuit and sausage gravy morning,
as most sundays are...

wrapped in blue velvet,
i wander
into my kitchen
make hot chocolate
topped with whipped cream,
roll out the buttermilk biscuits,
and saute the country sausage...
add a few shiitake mushrooms
and garlic,
for the roue
slowly stir in milk
and flour
for a rich feast...
one crumbled biscuit
 slathered with gravy,
presented to each canine companion
and
i will sit in the breakfast nook and share celebration of this new day...

jeannemarie, I may be a born city boy but later in life I learned how to make delicious biscuits with sausage gravy, and now I can't really eat it anymore due to my desire to lose weight. And even though the entire poem was excellent, I can see from your other reviews that I am not the only one focusing on the dish...mmm, I can almost smell the sausage browning in the cast-iron skillet. Thank you for the great read and the great photo accompaniment. take care...dan

This was a lovely image of a beautiful and relaxing Sunday morning. Sunday has always been quite an important day since the Lord knows when, and it's nostalgic to read a poem such as this that talks about the serenity of having a happy, quiet Sunday morning. Lovely writing. :)

I miss my Grandmother biscuit and sausage gravy morning. She was a find country lady. The poem took me back to good days and memories. Best time of the day. A family meal. Good conversation and laughter. Thank you my friend for sharing the excellent poetry.

I always enjoy your use of color and the way you des ribe light in your poetry. And as always, you make me hungry with the mushrooms and other favorites.
It's the simple moments that bring joy.

Can I come for breakfast if I bring my dog along! I'll even hand wash all the dishes before returning home. And this is no Phantasy that I would have a problem dealing with!
