Chocolate Essence

The two things coming up for me today are the healing powers of silence and Chocolate. So, I turned off the background noise of the Television and savored several pieces of chocolate. If Chocolate wasn’t so cool, I’d be embarrassed at how much of it is in our pantry. This is not my first poem about chocolate. A book of Chocolate poems is brewing, well fermenting might a better term since cacao beans are fermented. Enjoy the poem and enjoy some chocolate.

Chocolate Essence

that 3000-year-old pleasure.
Its essence contains the tropics, fire,
fermentation of time,
fat to caress the tongue and carry the flavor,
Cacao (Kakawa as the ancient Olmec coined)
to carry love and joy to the far reaches
of body
and mind.

Chocolate cherry almond,
Chili, Orange peel
the aphrodisiac of fruit.
Rose Chocolate is romance,
Cardamom Chai boosts creativity,
Lavender is tranquility,
Peppermint for energy.
Flowers and herbs and earth and sun
and Chocolate!

Let Chocolate essence sink into your awareness.
All else falls away.
Breathe and taste and savor.
A moment connecting with the rain forest,
connecting with ancient wisdom,
connecting with your wisdom,
your inner peace, your essence.
