are interrupted, his presence drawing near
repeated weight upon each step
closer now I hear
enter our morning tradition
balancing a teetering cup with only his right hand
accompanied by ceramic chatter
and I know
I can face the morning
and the day
Such a simple action
to give in such a way
He knows just how I like it
I’ve seen him watching me
We have this handy gadget it’s small yet does the job
blend organic agave & cream
pour coffee on the top
The cream foams at the brim
topped with sugar and cinnamon
from a dead soldier salt shaker
This sequence is a$$ backwards, yet the feeling just the same.
If asked would I do it over, I’d shout “I will” again.
New to me: Ice Cream and Popcorn
There was a new parlor on the outskirts of town.
What the heck, I’m old enough to drive now. Grab my friend Sheila and we’re off.
Wow, I’d seen nothing like this parlor except in the movies.
Sitting at the parlor table with our cones, we were brought a bowl of
popcorn. I look at Sheila who tells me to “dip your cone in it, like this.”
I dipped and tasted:
It was Reese’s Pieces commercial only three times more!
Not just two smoothies, rather: smooth and bumpy; hot and cold; sweet and salty.
The marriage of munching the popcorn as it gave way to the chilling ice cream
meeting in the middle and churning to a savory blend of absolute delectable divine.
Life’s like that: Joy and Sorrow, Ying-n- Yang
Off to the store now. Yum.
