Sweet Sugar Sunday


Lynn Greyling




Sweet Sugar Sunday

She was nibbling at her toast on Sunday
morning when they started to speak, eyes
lingering on each other. Mother began to
mix brown sugar into oatmeal, but the thing
about brown sugar is it tends to be just about
as subtle a cover for oats, breakfast of horses,
as are lingered looks a cover for hints of 
brown-molasses-sugar-night-sounds.  
Sounds that sweet and smooth drifted like 
powder, floating on 
pale blue light
late last night under
her doorway - From their passion to her palate
to the core of her soul – tasted on her tongue 
This Sunday morning as she ate her toasty
break-fast: Spooned-served-love on the side 
smiling parents on a sweet-sugar-Sunday-sigh

  7. This is very sweet (pun intended). I hope many youngsters, and not so young people, can experience 'smiling parents on a sweet-sugar-Sunday-sigh' once in a while.

  8. What a blissful morning. :)

    I really like all your hyphenated sections, like "brown-molasses-sugar-night-sounds."

    This:
    "powder, floating on
    pale blue light
    late last night"

    And this:
    "sweet-sugar-Sunday-sigh"
