Still Life With Cinnamon Rolls

In the stillness of my life
Thoughts cascade

No Still Life painting , I thought
Can be complete without flowers
Or fruit

A picture
Then snuck into my consciousness
Of cinnamon rolls with raisins
A capsicum and herb patty
A small cup of dark espresso
With a tiny almond biscuit nestling in the plate
Beside a tinkly spoon
Cherry jam red and luscious
A glass of tangy juice of tangerines
All on a round wooden tray
Decorated with a golden brown and white pattern
Of curlicues
On the deep maroon tablecloth
Of an ebony table

I forgot all about fruits and flowers
Wouldn’t you ?
