Round heels of crumpets,
aromatic lavender jam.
Poached eggs in a skillet,
succulent portions of ham.
An awakening stretch had heralded
a yawn mouthed long and loud.
While rain fell down in splatters
from the dark pewter clouds. 

Dated Macintosh slicker,
hoary exhausted gum boots.
Tenacious steps into nature
in search of family and roots.
The fallacies of the wind
twists hair into long plaits.
Across wide fields of enchantment
new journeys await.

    I like this poem a lot - very vivid description of food and a nascent adventure. Please explain the title to me. Peace & Love Matthew Anish

    Sounds like a grand awakening for a begining enchantment... Nice poem... Terry (by the way, I was sad when I wrote "The Harlot", I also wonder about the the thoughts, disappointed dreams, the tragedies of "harlots"... sometimes I feel our 'society' lets everybody down... I've just read the "Litttle Match Girl"... yes I suppose my 'little harlot' has some 'overlap' with the little match girl... Thanks for reflecting on my poem...)
