Breakfast in Shades of Blue


Come join me for breakfast
In shades of blue,
While the sun is shining,
birds are singing,
Flowers are blooming,
And I’m alone but,
I’m thinking of you
While I eat breakfast
In shades of blue.

Wish I could join you...it looks wonderful :-) I love blue glass with sun shining through it and your poem fits the setting to a tee!

I just woke up after working the night shift and your breakfast looks delish! Your blue dishes are so pretty. Would you reccommend that book?

Amy said...

Wonderful! I'll be right over...

Mary said...

I always love a poem and love how your table is set. Some times it is just these simple things in life that are so pleasing to our souls...I love how bloggers share these tiny moments of their life, it is creative and artistic.

I'll join in with the other northerners saying how nice the prospect of being able to eat a pleasant outdoor breakfast seems right now. The place setting alone looks idyllic.

Mary, Beth, Vern, Amy, Mary's View, Ocean, Sandpiper, Doug and Lynne I wish you and all my other blogging friends could join me for breakfast. Especially all of you in the northeast! I'd love to give you a break from that cold and snow! The blue glass dishes were a gift from my daughter to go with the blue glasses I bought at Reny's in Farmington, ME. Beth should know where that is!

Yes, Lynne, I would recommend that book. Rosen draws together all the aspects of birding nicely. In some parts it can be a little dry if you don't like quotes from poetry and philosophy, but his own personal observations and his evolution as a birder are highly entertaining. I have learned alot about the history of ornithology in America and the human connection to wildlife. His account of the history of and the search for the ivory-billed woodpecker is riveting (to me at least). My book pages are already all marked up with annotations and underlines.

Hi Kathie,

If you were thinking of me you would have prepared two eggs over medium with wheat toast and a side of breakfast sausage.-Very clever to come up with little poems on the spot like that.
