Banana Split (standard:poetry, 0 words)

It sits before me, cold and sweet. 

Three spheres gently cradled 

between soft, pale yellow fingers. 


A trickle of warm chocolate fudge 

flows over one the spheres 

beginning a slow and inevitable 

melting process. 


Strawberries, sweet and tart 

suspended in their own red juices 

lie gently on the center sphere. 


A bright yellow pineapple sauce, 

a gift from the tropics, 

mingles with the final frozen sphere. 


Each it's own pleasure, 

yet brought together 

in this one splendid moment. 


Clouds of cream, 

sweet, white and thick 

adorn the summits of the 

three frozen spheres. 


Alone, atop it all, 

resigned to its fate, 

proudly sits a single cherry. 


I look at the dessert 

sitting gloriously 

upon the table. 


How can I! I scream. 

But it is calling me. 

Waiting for me.
