Things that are better fat

Spring robins,
Neutered lap cats,
Breast fed babies
with toes that barely fit on their round little feet.

Northern pike,
Pussy willow catkins,
Frozen margaritas,
and hot-buttered corn on the cob
with kernels so plump
they burst on every chomp.

Let’s keep going…

Rollie pollie black bears,
A night time log for the fire,
Avocado for homemade guac,
and VW bugs with a spot for flowers on the dash.

Lemon meringue pie,
A good book on a lazy vaca,
White faced snowy barn owls,
Puffy Cinnamon rolls
topped with fat pecans trapped in oozing butterscotch.

Still more?

Campfire marshmallows,
Ambling porcupines,
Snow-melt creeks,
and juicy kissing lips that leave you breathless every time
…long sigh…

…a little faster now…

Gourmet chefs,
Santa Claus,
Lop-eared bunnies,
Sunday afternoons,
Baritone singers,
Peanuts in the shell,
Ax handles,
Night crawlers,
Cumulous clouds,
Work horses,
Stadium cushions,
Down comforters,
Milk weed pods,
Christmas trees,
a fresh peach


and of course…
a bold
old vine zin
in a big-bowled wine glass
woo ha!
