March 6: Delicious



spring's first baby-green growth
sunbreaks in the rainy city
splendour of the mountain-out
softness of an infant's cooing cheek
surprises that spring into life
sundaes topped with pillows of cream
skin that trembles when touched
secrets between ancient lovers
soft kisses exchanged with tender intent
delectable, decadent, delightful, delicious

On this day in 1912, Oreo Cookies were sold for the first time.  Reflect on something delicious.

Verse in a Nutshell

    Stretching lazily, awakening from winter's long nap, Admiring the greening that touches, then wraps, Animals chasing each other in frolicking play, Eager for new experiences that life brings their way, Lovers enjoying the warmth outdoors, and within, Hoping to connect with words, and with skin, Spring, a time to taste the honeysuckle's first flower, And laugh with surprise at life's growing power.

      Beautiful, Dan. When I was a boy on the farm, we would pull the petals out of a flower that grew wild. We called it honeysuckle, I believe it was really a form of clover. We would place them on our tongues and it had the sweetest taste. Your poem dredged up a pleasant 50-year-old memory.

    RESPONSE TO MARCH 6TH CHALLENGE: DELICIOUS Spring's first bulbs pushing up through black, rich earth With colors of purple, pink, white and yellow where Crocus, Daffodils and Hyacinth jockey for position for who will be Next to wake up from long Winter's naps causing smiles all Around as do juicy, ripe, lucious berries when a bite is taken Red Strawberries and Rasberries that give a pucker to lips Longing for more, longing for life to March to one's door and Knock loudly with Greeting as if to say "Take it all in and do not leave anything to Chance for today is the first day of the Rest of your Life"!
