We took our time
slow and steady over the low warmth of life
stirring again and again
watching as we thickened into something
soft and smooth and beautiful.
We grew above us a barrier
thick yet velvet to the touch
knowing below there was so much more,
carefully peeling back the layer
to allow the scent and texture
of love to move slow and steady
diving into the ecstasy of life
we found ourselves in the thick of love,
blissfully aware of each bite,
sighing as we knew the end would follow at some point,
so we took time
moving slower and slower
savoring each little bit
scraping the edges for remnants
never wanting it to end.
Thoughts of life and the pudding I loved as a child. Cooked slowly and once done, would develop this thick beautifully smooth to the touch skin. Sometimes we would take off the skins as it cooled so that it would recreate new to replace what was gone and then we would dive into the delightful concoction. I kept seeing life like that pudding, and love. I suppose anything can be metaphorically linked to good things we remember….for me today, chocolate pudding. Don’t ask me why, it just wouldn’t leave my thoughts so I guess I had to share some with you. Enjoy each bit my friends…I think I need to go make some pudding later….mmmmmm ❤ Perhaps with some whipped cream too, just because.
