Memories in Shades of Chocolate

after watching
a three year old
devour a chocolate ice cream cone
i am convinced
it's not what's on the inside
what's on the outside
that counts

as she smiled
through several layers
of chocolate
i couldn't help
but envy her

it has been
a long time
since being covered
in chocolate ice cream
didn't bother me

  1. My youngest was just covered in chocolate ice cream this afternoon - and boy does it look like delicious fun!
