Sunday Breakfast

Updated on July 29, 2012

Sunday Breakfast

By Tony DeLorger © 2011

What stays so resolutely in our memories can often be such unimportant and momentary experiences, that we barely understand why they remain. Childhood can be a source of such frozen moments, seemingly lack lustre fragments of past attached to us, unwilling to be lost.

What triggers these memories can be simple things like the smell of a particular food or the snap of a winter chill, feeling a piece of clothing or a familiar sound. Then, without warning the memory floods back in detail and with it the emotions and feelings associated with that experience.

I often recall certain landmark as well as everyday experiences in my childhood like that; sudden mental impact and flooding emotion. It takes you by surprise and the glow of its after-effects, lingering and bringing a smile to your face.

Sunday Breakfast

Frosty morning waking, crusted window ice,

blankets warm inviting, drifting sleep advice.

Kitchen steps below me, mother working late,

Sunday hotcakes syrup, begin to salivate.

Dressing gown ‘n slippers, on railing slide to see,

A steaming stack aroma packed a seat aside for me.

Family down the coffee ground, some juice in jug to pour,

What better Sunday morning, a kid for ever more.

      Morning Tony.

      A nice hub that got me sitting back, closeing my eyes and travelling back 50 odd years or so. There's lots of little single moments that flash back to mind. Some you can laugh at and others that are a bit sad.

      Lovely rhyme and i love what looks like potatoe cakes or pancakes covered in honey. LOL
