small stones – March 10, 2016


like caramel and chocolate
sweet, decadent, smooth
lingering upon the tongue
delighting the taste buds
sliding effortlessly
pleasuring the throat

like strong black coffee
bitter, pungent, sharp
a stab against the tongue
a shock to the taste buds
swallowed hard and fast
invading the throat

I am tasting my words
before I say them

still life

fresh fruit
sweetness lingers in the air
autumn harvest

freezing morning
warm smells from the kitchen
hot chocolate

[ah – warm toast]
fresh smell of sweet cinnamon
childhood thoughts

the house fills with cookie smells
snow storm howls
