Hoarding Chocolates - 8


A Box of Confections

chocolate delights--
the sweet taste of your lips
lingers all night

this Valentine’s eve
I’ll have no other sweets--
the day is long

an east wind blows
the nectar of your scent
fills my being

my eyes overflow
with your dark beauty
Spring dream

cherry blossoms, you
and chocolate
--John Daleiden; Phoenix, AZ

Since the days of the Aztecs chocolate has been used as a gift. Today a box of luxurious quality chocolate says a thousand "thank you's", "good luck", or "I love you". Chocolate can be given as a way of saying "congratulations", "I am sorry" or "get well soon". On Valentine's Day chocolate clearly says "I LOVE YOU!" Chocolate is more than food, it not only fills your belly but also makes you feel soooo good.

putting away groceries-
one, two, three, boxes
of chocolate
--gillena cox

okay! I will succumb

after my oatmeal,
a chocolate muffin
and I won't count calories!
--Doris Kasson
