Just Another Metaphor

The fried egg resting
upon the plate was
like the sun living
among the clouds



in the sky.



The famished



unmindful boy creates



a sunset as the glowing



yellow yolk mixes



with the ruby red jam.

Within seconds the
opalescent sky is replaced
with the moody midnight
of black coffee.


Cream and sugar

sprinkle in as the dew

drops that cover

the sparkling

ground waiting for

the sun

to return.

This subject is so simple, yet you made it seem complex with raveling beauty. Amazing.
