buttered toast

The rustle of the bread bag calls

And the rising heat will wobble

Air above the plastic toaster,

There’s nothing quite like baking bread,

That scent that wafts through kitchen windows

Calling in the hungry boys – toast is ready!

Crunching as the knife glides over

Spreading glossy butter, pooling

In yellow lakes, then smothered with the jam,

Ruby red and glistening in the morning light

That slices through the kitchen blinds.

I sometimes just like to pick something mundane and write about it. It really helps to get the creative juices flowing to let your eyes land on the first thing you come across and then commit to writing about that. No saying that it’s too boring – just write.

Today’s prompt was toast – because who doesn’t love toast.

Much Love

    Toast is a great choice, Rachel. It’s homey, it’s warm and comforting, and it ‘s great as a snack, part of a meal, or even a meal itself. A cuppa and a piece of toast – what’s not to love?
