What’s for Breakfast

written by: Genie Nakano

my comfort food
onigiri with pickled plum
then a sudden change
peanut butter ‘n jam
nothing stays the same

breakfast the sun
for a solar power seek
catch a sugary moon
sprinkle sweetness into dreams
spice up everyday life.

in a pot that melts
stir a steaming brew
with a recipe
to knock the senses
reality is on the range

 

NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:

Onigiri is flavored rice wrapped in seaweed (nori).  It is my favorite...delicious.

I was born in Boyle Heights, CA. known as the barrios of East L.A. I am a journalist for The Rafu Shimpo and have written three books of Haiku and Tanka. My latest is "Colorful Lives" a tanka and adult coloring book. Tanka, the elder elegant sister of haiku, is my favorite form of writing it keeps me succinct and musical at the same time. After all..tanka means "short Song".
I was a professional dancer and photographer for many years. Currently I teach Yoga and tanka at the Japanese Cultural Institute In Gardena, CA.
