Orange delight

Posted to Poetry




lady greeted me at
our local store
and I went to the
freezer where I
picked out the most
wonderfull of all
treats, an orange
popsicle.

outside I carefully unwrapped
the treasure as sunlight
cascaded off of it's smooth surface
small droplets began to appear

slowly the bright orange creature
was inserted into my waiting mouth
as my eyes closed I tasted ice cold
nirvana as it circled my tong lips
and into my throat

my mind was clear the feeling of
a little boy and his treat were delicious,
yet I am a grown man still enoying the
moments when life was oh so simle
