Heart of the Artichoke

Heart of the Artichoke

A Poem by Patricia Wedel
"

You are the sweet succulent heart of the artichoke... dipped in creamy butter of delicious desire... You are Rhubarb in early Spring dipped in sugary kisses of love...

"
As passions emerge and hungers delight... 
the possibilities soar from bloom to bloom 
The blossoms of Spring have become 
the hope of summer's reward. 
Cranberry and Blueberry golden wheat bread 
become the mainstay of a lover's retreat... 
served with creamy Brie as chords of Mozart 
flood the banks of rippling streams of 
promises made under the tender boughs 
of summer sighs and bluest of skies.

'Heart of the Artichoke'
Patricia Wedel,
I loved reading this. Softness and light, summer and music with the thread of love holding it all together. So beautiful. I am left yearning for winter to get moving and let Spring come on in. Winter is not finished of course but I love all the seasons.
Thanks for your writing.
Blessings,
Kathy
