My Dear Little Man

When I come to visit, I seek you out.
Catching sight of you, my delight takes flight. 

A glance my way, a tiny smile flickers,
You’re a little bit shy–not quite certain.

Yes! I still love you and I always will!
You needn’t doubt, I’m on your side,
To make you happy is my aim.
To see you smile and feel secure,
Brings me joy–let’s play a game! 

You’re the best and I mean it,
You’re a bright, shining light,
Who warms my heart
And tickles me inside. 

Please know this, Nicholas,
My dear little man,
Auntie Gayle loves you,
You can count on me forever!

Nicholas is my nephew’s son.  I really do light up when I’m around him.  He is such a blessing.

Such Good Taste

Lemony sour
makes my
mouth pucker
as well as
yogurt, plain
unadulterated.

I enjoy
bitter coffee,
warm and
comforting,
only blended
with cream and
sugar to sweeten.

Fruits, nuts,
carrots and honey
made by bees–
sweet comes
naturally in so
many foods.

Tannins are
astringent
and dry the
mouth–some
are found in
tea, wine and
fresh ripened herbs.

A trace of salt
is in most
naturally
grown foods
but don’t add
too much
of this flavor-
enhancing
stuff.

Piquant is
the most exotic
and my favorite
of tastes which
brings the
“heated” spice
of ginger,
black pepper
and curries to
my flavor-craving buds.

Taste #2

BEST POET FRIEND AWARD


You are new to me
And I’m the same to you
But
Words keep us bonded.
Ink makes us siblings.
And the passion that we’re having
Is as hot as the sun burning.

 

I WOULD PERSONALLY GIVE THIS AWARD TO THE FOLLOWING PEOPLE:
JINGLE
For being such an inspiration to everyone.
You can only do much.

JAMIE
For all the wise thoughts!
Thanks much!

GAYLE
For never failing to visit my page since I started joining the rally.
I appreciate it.

 

I am deeply touched by this kind gift given to me–thank you B.  How very thoughtful you are–and love your sweet poem.  I am very new to this poetry group and I have been so lovingly embraced by so many–it has meant a lot to me.  And I agree with you about Jingle and Jamie–they both are extraordinary people!
