Haiku Friday: Breakfast food!

There is something wonderfully evocative about breakfast food-- it brings back memories, is the setting for our most casual moments, and is at the root of traditions.  I love the fact that when Jesus returns from death to meet with his followers, he goes to the shore and makes them breakfast.  There is something deeply human yet divine in that.

What is that one food that does it for you, that has meaning, that you long for or remember?  Let's haiku about that this week.  I'll go first:

Island toast: eaten
Only at Osler Island.  
I wait, eagerly.

Now it is your turn-- just make it 5 syllables/7 syllables/5 syllables and have some fun!

Bacon, scrambled eggs
Signify after church brunch
Filling, body/soul
Some grandmas do pies,
Fried chicken or casseroles.
Mine? She does breakfast.
My tennis teammate
Had dinner food for breakfast
Steak and salad-yum!
Hubby Dave’s scrambled
eggs are heaven. Light. Fluffy.
Perfect anytime.

Java the steam chugs
To my insensate station
Gears grind. Toes move. Wake!
Champagne, croissant, cafe:
He brings it,no summons.
Vased rose flames desire.

The egg is a sun
Saturned by agate white ring.
Bacon-Lured tableward.

KitchenAid Mixer
silky smooth batter, cast iron
sizzling, buttery...

Powdered sugar
lemon wedges, fork tender,
a tasty morsel
Island toast IS best
I have nothing else to add
But some Malkin's Jam
Cinnamon raisin,
Toasted with peanut butter,
A bagel delight.
Sal--thy bosom is
like well-fried eggs or
Pancakes with brown spots. YUM!

Listen Osler--Geoff sucks

I suppose I could
Avenge bosom with sausage
Meataphor. I'm a Lady!
