Online journal capturing the moment and the memory of moments. A meadow meditation.
Dad, add mint and hope — to dispel the stench
of last night's snores — that raspy voice of dreams,
mix in milk to make it creamy — bananas
to give some substance — baking powder
to fluff it up — pour on a hot griddle,
flip when done — a feast for Sunday morning's
breakfast — then lick the plate clean when finished;
but I beg — please leave some for your monkey.
