Poems. Prayers & Promises

Knickerbocker Glory

He put his spoon into the cream
And felt about for the fruit
Perhaps a cherry
Seconds passed as he swirled
The metal chinked with the glass
Past meringue
Even a cherry
Promises! Promises! He muttered
And proceeded to clear the contents
And he found the fruit
Deep inside
The realization of pure delight
Discovered in depths
Hidden in ice-cream
Set in jelly
Where eyes could not see
Its soft caress
Of joyous pleasure.

  1. Good one... I like the last part...

    " Its soft Caress of Joyous Pleasure"

  2. Ah, it sometimes takes a bit of patience until one reaches that delicious fruit buried inside....but it is pure pleasure and worth the wait! Nice prompt, Alan.

  3. ha. lots of pleasure in that glass....smiles...sometimes we have to dig a little to find that pleasure & joy as well...ha. for some reason this was a hard prompt for me alan...thanks for the challenge...

  4. "he found the fruit deep inside"... I love that, Alan.

  5. Sounds like it's worth the patience to get to the good stuff!

  6. yummy poem! we have to dig a bit sometimes for those gems of sheer delight! Have a great day!

  7. It is like digging for gold when one approaches a dessert like this ... and life too ...

  8. I feel the same way about finding the goodies like cherries deep inside a dish of yummy ice cream (which I love all too much.)

  9. hidden makes it best sometimes

  10. Yum!! I wish that I was in England, this sounds like such an amazing dessert :-) It is so fun to look through dessert (I do it to salad also) to find just the right bite!
