Late Morning Breakfast

Overnight, the wind has
churned and stirred the sky’s sticky batter
and we’ve awoken to
find muffins baking in summery sunshine.

No two look alike,
some rise with bulbous mushroom heads,
others, ironed flat,
lie like pancakes on that plate of blue slate.

Each has been sprinkled
with its own special ingredient; overhead,
one speckled with berries,
its neighbor glossy with a sugary coating.

Infused with caffeine,
we marvel at this bakery showcase now
rolling off the assembly line,
a parade of clouds drizzled with sunlight.

Off-limits to mere humans
who must settle for soggy bowls of cereal,
it is a breakfast feast
only the gods of Olympus will appreciate.
