A Morning Delight

This morning was such a gorgeous sunrise, I couldn’t help writing a poem to complement it – this was before I had had any breakfast, just in case you were wondering! I hope you enjoy. 🙂

I’m hungry

just looking at it. . .

rashers of bacon

streaking the sky

a crisp edged horizon

much like the crust

on toast,

and oh

the sun,

that slowly rising sun

oozing golden yolk

and dripping yellow butter

I can’t stop my tongue

reaching out and

licking the air

where my fried egg should be,

and I can’t help

feeling this morning

filling my heart

and delighting

just delighting me.



  1. I love mornings like this when I am fishing, or playing golf 🙂


    • Me too! I’m lucky enough to start work just as the sun is rising 😀 thanks for stopping by and commenting x

      • Oh, now I’m jealous! I walked for an hour in the cold, but that can’t compete with a day spent working outdoors. Your sunset is still ringing me joy, filling my mind with bacon in the sky. 🙂
