For breakfast I eat up my vowels, my a e i o u, to which I add from consonants a fricative or two;
After that I move my bowels then write as poets do, and frequently am quite surprised to feel a trill come through.

A little bit of Turkish: Bal (Honey) Parmak (Finger/Toe) Yalamak (to lick) Tutmak (to hold)

Bal tutan parmak yalar.
Who holds honey, licks fingers.

The image of The Empress above is from a 1910 pack of tarot cards produced by Pamela Colman Smith for Arthur Edward Waite. For a modern reproduction I recommend the Pamela Colman Smith Commemorative Set.
