Marmalade

Fresh home made bread with a crusty crust,
Butter from old Billís farm down the lane,
Marmalade from the orange grove,
Thick rind with a hint of cinnamon,
Newly picked apple juice from the squeezer,
Coffee aroma fills the air,
All that missing is Carole,
Her face across the breakfast table,
Now a memory,
R I P Carole.

An exceptional poem, JJ. Life is full of 'triggers'. Your poem's words might have easily been mine in respect of someone I loved greatly. My Grandma. I always remember the times we spent together eating breakfast when I was a young lad. Blessings and love, Allen

And how all the nice things presented to us, are as but ashes compared to your loss. This to me was such a strong poem as it saves it's message until the last.

Thanks John John
