Honey

Honey

Ribbons of honey drench my toast,
Melting into butter and crumb;
Satisfying sweetness fills my soul.

Dipping deep into the honey jar,
Sunshine yellow, full of dripping gold;
Ribbons of honey drench my toast.

The morning sun spills across the table
Warming my skin.  I am
Melting into butter and crumb.

Bird songs fill the stillness.  I take
A long sip from my coffee mug and
Satisfying sweetness fills my soul.
