Oh this is so tempting!

When I take inspiration from words like temptation, salsa and island, my mind automatically goes to food. There’s nothing that tempts me more than the food I love!

I try to be angelic 
But you tempt with with devil’s food cake
The swirls of chocolate dancing salsa on the glossy surface
Break my resolve to abstain in a few aromatic whiffs
It’s too hard to resist and forgo this pleasure
That looks like an oasis of bliss, an island of delight
Excuse me while I dig in, your allowed only to watch


Written for Paula’s PCF # 14

write a poem, a story, a memory, whatever you like. Take your inspiration this week from Valspar’s “island salsa” and/or “temptation.” Tag your post Paint Chip Friday, or PCF

  1. Oh my, that’s the best poem ever, Sadje. You always, always, always, make me smile. I love this. “an oasis of bliss, an island of delight” 😅❤️ This line is bliss in and of itself. Wonderful poem, my friend.
