What’s for Breakfast

written by: Genie Nakano

@genieyogini

 

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.
