Comfy Food

Oh, the balmy sweet smell brushed my nose.

I walked downstairs, 

in my sleepy haze.

Cinnamon, vanilla. Nutmeg?

Joy as I sat; in front of my slices 

of fluffy, soaked bread with warmed butter, 

thick, maple syrup; topped

with blackberries, blueberries and strawberries.

A warm, shiver went down my spine,

as I place the first bite in my watering 

mouth and childhood memories spring.

Hopscotch, tennis, musical chairs, 

bundles of books and touch football.
