Dark Choc
Chocolate Gives (Blog-a-ton 53)

It gives
Gives way to nibbles
Decreases at increase of tooth; sweet
pressure, the tingle, thy name is chocolat

It gives
Hormonal cravings soothed
Creased brow smoothed
by silky melt on hungry tongue

It gives
Oh, the hips
Bulky, sumptuous
Babushka arms sway leisurely as I wave

It gives
Vain pleasure
Fleeting moments of indulgence
Your fragrance leaves me longing

It’s BLOG-A-TON 53! Thanks to Blog-a-thon Marshal Saravana Kumar Murugan for sending the link. They’re taking poems about chocolate all day, so pick up your pencil and dive into the sweetest pool in town… Peace and chocolate bunnies (which Riley and I never had the heart to eat. I mean, where do you start?) I am THRILLED to be joining bloggers in India for this challenge. They accept as many as one can write; just put the link into your message once the “doors” open! Good luck, and happy writing. Amy
