Of the dark, offered in the morning cup, and the chill of salted caramel cream, spooning after an impervious dream and clink-clink spell of alarum abrupt, comes the ceramic to sip, birdsong up. Fruity-caffeine drips into the bloodstream. Imagery from a black forest daydream. Pleasing sense and bonny sounds come to sup. Draining of dregs, at last bit - bottom’s cold. The Cupid sheet, vanilla, clings to spouse. The warmth of my body under his skin. The vigor of unharnessed dark horse bold. His stirring, a second helping, aroused. Pastels of cockcrow flutes, dawn’s violins. 2/16/2021 Italian Sonnet abbaabba / cdecde

So blissful to imagine a second helping through your pen--daydreams in every sip my friend---especially as you evoke flutes and violins. A lovely romantic write, Kim.
