Daily Prompts- Ice cream dream

It is summer and I dream of ice cream

A decadent cup full to the brim of goodness

I am watching my calories and have to calculate

Each bite I take has to be weighed carefully

Yet I cannot stop from wondering if I can sneak in a taste

And I need a lucky shamrock to make my dessert calorie free

It would be callous on your part to flaunt your yummy treat

Right under my nose while I am still debating the idea

Whether to indulge my desire or just wander off for a walk

In response to the following prompts;




Watching, Calculate, Wander




Ice cream

Word of the day challenge;
