POST 135: Valentine’s Day, parfum, purple cabbage, Bike, poetry, painting, white chocolate

by Carol Bass














You would know all I really need
is fresh local strawberries in January
and gorgeous deep yellow
baby summer squash
small lima beans
and a head of purple cabbage

Soft kisses of white chocolate
candles in poppy red
and a very expensive Chardonnay
from that organic Italian vineyard
a bed with a good mattress
your strong arms

An occasional book of poetry
my orange beach bike
yes, and maybe that champagne-colored
camisole, a small bottle of
Grande Amour gardenia parfum
and always the moon my love
