February 2011 – Chocolate

Breaking through your shell
filling smooth against my tongue
decadent sweetness

proof the universe
is functioning as it should
Hershey’s with almonds

so divine and bitter sweet
dark mysterious antioxidant goodness
I love the excuse to eat you
~Cricket LaFaux

birthday tradition
visit to the candy aisle
heart-shaped box half off
a haiku gift for HC’s Feb 15 birthday
