Lemon Meringue Morning
A slice of heaven set upon
the table of hungry souls
flavoured with a lemon hue
and served in golden bowls

Nourishment for the populace
who crave for sustenance
food for the soul is offered up

a gift from providence

Tempting to the muse's tongue
it is ambrosia for its heart
so nature feeds the artist
with a feast of corporeal art

Woke up to the above photo by my friend, the brilliant nature photographer Shawn Fitzpatrick.  This is not the first time one of Shawn's photos has inspired me to poetry and I'm sure it won't be the last!
