New Poem ‘Morning List’

Morning List

Aromas of snuffed out candles
A new bar of soap
The fix of fresh black coffee
A warm fruit teacake
smothered in melting butter

First sight and smell
of the salty sea

    🙂 Those sensations are so uplifting! To have them sensed all in one morning! What a start…

    I also love this painting, it’s tender colours 🙂

    One for the Poetry from the Sea blog! (I hope! )

    What a great place to be! One day, one day…Instead, my present morning list is more like taking out the dog, cold pizza, and car fumes from the street.

    Thank you so much! Yes, it would be good, wouldn’t it? Can’t say I’ve been there today either… except in my imagination! At least we’ve got that. I am acquainting myself with your site now. Thank you!

    Thank you! You have an interesting website. Back in the 90s I did an astrology diploma course – haven’t done an awful lot with it since, though! Kind regards.

    Your work sometimes reminds me of Robert Hass – one of my favorite poets. If you’ve never read him, go to a library or a book store and pick up his book “Time and Materials”. It’s really short, but it’s an experience.

    Thank you James. I very much appreciate your comments. I know a little about Robert Hass, seen him read a few things on TV etc, but I’ve never read much about him, let alone have one of his books, so I thank you for pointing him out – I will have a look!

    A gorgeous vignette of a very happy time – it is easy to write sad things, not so easy to write joyous things as you have done! Evocative smells and images – I am so impressed.
