Hot Candle Tears

Blood-letting wax

there is comfort upon

   rainbows

solace from my dreams.

There are things that seem
never
to get done
but who cares when
I’ve waited
for you to finally come
back to me
never knowing when
that moment will arise.

Blue jays screech
in the background
reminding me to do the laundry
sweep the floors and
wash the breakfast dishes
as I teeter on this precipice
this crazy lit up place
clinging to your essence
I won’t let you go, just yet.

chores can wait
chores are boring
chores will always be there

Finally, the jays have flown off
a distant caw scratches into the breeze
now I feel this day is ours
remember the ease of this
I will.

The dog sleeps next to me
on the chair as I struggle
to peck out every word
every seed, every kernel
of thought, as I gather them
and place this story in my head.

Bit by bit, and sound by sound
I grip my brow and
wonder where you went
as fleeting as the blue jay
your incessant screeching
lingers off…
into the soft powdered haze
of this hot Florida day
alone again and waiting
for your next visit.

The vacuum hisses
and screams
sucking dust
off the floor
as the dog
convulses
and whimpers
from his daytime
nightmare.

Chores are Boring

Our weekly farmer’s market trips always yield a delightful new experience for my partner and I. On this trip we tasted our first Pop Craft treat.

What a great way to cool down after a trek through the hot morning sun. They have a fantastic choice of both, creamy and icy artisan popsicles to choose from.  New flavors will pop up week to week. I chose the icy” Blueberry Lemon Basil” while my partner chose the creamy “Coconut Cream.”

Both flavors were cold, full of flavor and definitely unique. Most certainly my “Blueberry Lemon Basil” was unique, it had bits of basil in the pop, hence its’ true artisan flavor.

I had to eat mine quickly before it melted, so I didn’t hesitate to bite into the icy cold treat.

Donna L. Tortorice is the “Lady Pop” herself and she is getting ready to open her first bricks and mortar pop shop here in Sarasota this July. Congratulations! I love to see small local businesses like this be successful. And I certainly love to partake in tasty, local,  artisan foodie stuff.
