Sunday Morning, "Ladies of the Canyon" and Blueberry Pancakes

Updated on June 19, 2013

Morning sun peaks through blinds

Warm, bright beams thaw icy ground

The world awakes as do I

Stretch, yawn, connect with earth

Breathe and expand muscle

After peaceful sleep

Sunday comes

Blessed day of rest

Make the world stop

And enjoy rich blessings

Ethereal music drifts from the stereo

A voice from the past produces vocal art

Each note and word a musical sculpture

I dwell on the beauty and prepare breakfast

Mix batter with ripe, juicy blueberries

Spoon the mixture on well-used griddle

Sizzle, flip, and gingerly place on plates

My creation warm, brown, and light as air

Air to be sweetened with maple syrup

And to be enjoyed by you

      Sounds great and delicious too. We are Joni Mitchell fans as well. Nice poem, sherrituck!

      I wondered if anyone would catch the reference to Joni! Joni Mitchell and Joan Baez are my two favorite female singers. Thanks for stopping by :)

      I love them both! Saw Joan Baez in 1964 at Big Sur Hot Springs, got a great photo. We were both much younger....

      I saw Joan two years ago at the North Carolina Museum of Art. She is still great!

      Great title! When I read this I thought of the Guideposts. Have you ever sent your wonderful poems to the Christian Guideposts magazine?

      I haven't. Perhaps I should consider. Thanks for the encouragement and kind words. : )
