What to do today.
Is it a party day?
hmmm, yup, but a party of two, a pair, duo?
Chocolates, flowers, jewelry and proposals. Puppies, kittens wonderful meals and trips.
A day when all of these happen, florists smile happily.
so gifts? extravagant?
or just… an I love you.
Is that enough?
Perhaps a trip to a very special cheese shop, to pick out a selection of tidbits
Tradition? Like other holidays? to do the same things?
sometimes that works. When they are special things.
saving your money, counting all the coin, skimping..
Then off to a grand cheesery, where they really cater to you…
let you sample and tell you all about the cheeses
you tell them how much you saved, let them pick…
tasting each one in the shop, smiling because they are all great.
then you gather your prizes and head home, to share them.
candle light and wine, crackers and music
cheese that makes you moan it is so tasty
shared with sparkling eyes and smiles…
We are adding to tradition tonight
Jill has a CHOCOLATE FOUNTAIN
kiwi, banana, strawberries… mmmmmmm
To include the rest of your family in tradition… is it then still two?
a pair… well it is a pair of two… or two pair
so do you then stay with tradition.. just one pair?
We could, but Jill has a chocolate fountain!
so a pair of twos, otherwise one pair may be eating kraft dinner…..
Instead of salmon with Hollandaise sauce with fresh dill… risotto and asparagus..
oh.. and pears poached in brandy and honey, then served in phyllo shells that have cinnamon and sugar between the layers drizzled with dark chocolate….
we will share
memories and love
those are things for sharing.
a moon so full
a glass of wine
sunrise on a lake
a crackling fire
all empty things
