A Fine Flavor Between Lines

Is it Love a simple bowl of ice cream sweating from the heat cherries on the top huddled 'round and looking sweet two little wooden paddles pretend that they are spoons as we sit beneath the stars in the savor of the moon your lips are all I see as they caress them with a passion the cherries on your tongue in a delightful playful fashion with our eyes intent and focused in a stare of solemn trust Is this ice cream truly love or is it merely cherry lust

G'day Jerry … it's really debatable isn't it Jerry, but only about what order - love follows ice cream and cherries or vice versa. Both will occur; maybe - thanks Mate - Lindsay

Hello Jerry My Good Friend!! This is a most wonderful rhyme write. I find that the very interesting nature of your writes coupled always with you knack and feel for subtle humor is funny, compelling, and for me -- mesmerizing.
