The most beautiful description of that plate imaginable.I wish I could have read it without having seen the picture.
I agree with MAS, the picture robs the words of their power, without the picture are even more evocative.
This must be the most charming tribute to eggs on toast ever.
on the advice of Elisabeth and MAS, I have wiped the plate clean ...
Lovely imagery! I think you did well to clear the plate;-)
Good job, Isabel. Now others can enjoy the uncluttered beauty of your words. Mind you I liked the look of that plate. Found myself wondering whose teeth bit the hole out of the egg.
Very nice. I liked the crunchy brown hat; nice touch.
Aww - really nice one!
I love how you played up the Blue Willow. Very nice.
The beauty of the plate and your words! Complete..
Never saw the man in the moon in this image until you pointed it out...and with a hat too! Very good take. Vb
Yes, yes! I saw the toast as hair, the yolk winking back at me. Nicely done!!
Did you enjoy the eggs and toast as much as I enjoyed the poem?
You were kind to that picture...
Yummy stuff!Anna :o]
This is a lovely ode to the plate and its occupants...but I would most likely keep it on display than use it. Thanks for visiting .
Wonderful description. I too saw the yellow eyes.
Good to see someone cleared her plate!
Just imagine two moons!I now feel our planet has been short changed!Very imaginitive post.
Love the imagery and the whimsy.
