I prefer it bittersweet and hot. But sometimes it has to be white chocolate.

In the cellar
the old wine-grower
opens a can

Jouvert, in Trinidad and Tobago, dawns the Carnival bachannal; when mud and mas are corollaries, and this has been so, seemingly forever. Then, early in the new millenium (2007), enter chocolate; the new jouvert icon


the jouvert band--
gyrating chocolate covered
humans

snowed in
warming up with cocoa
and extra cream

Hot chocolate, yummy, or as I have on my blog, hot cocoa. Growing up we didn't have these mixes that come with sugar, only unsweetened cocoa which my mother mixed with milk and added sugar to taste. For extra richness, a dollop of whipped cream on top.

Hot Chocolate

For over 3000 years, Chocolate like gold, has had a universal appeal...

the telephone booth-
remember the coin return
and no connection
--gillena cox

My paternal grandmother, Veronica Mitchell (many years deceased), used to grind cocoa beans which she would shape into cocoa logs and balls, to be used for making hot chocolate. She sold them, along with herbs and spices in the old Chaguanas market

out in the street
the barking dog chasing after
passing cars
