A breakfast worth savoring

This morning I woke up/
hungry for a bowl of Alice Coltrane/
sweetened with the vocals of /
Nancy Wilson/I poured out some Monk and/

sipped a steamy hot cup of/
'trane /I took a bite of Miles and/
my mouth exploded with the bluesy notes/
of Dinah Washington and Billie Holiday/
I savored the rich flavors of Carmen McRae/
notes and rifts/
mellow-dees and harm-on-ees/
fed me and replenished my starved/
body and soul/
I walked away from the table/
full and content/
breaking my fast from the empty/
gnawing that was inside my belly/
I was filled with the nourishment/
provided by the tickling of light and dark/
the playfulness of Sassy/
the soulfulness of Nina/
my heart skipped in double time/
to the tune of "a tisket-a tasket"
I skipped away/
swinging my brown and yellow basket/
full and free!

(c)2005 Berry
