Chocolate Lover’s Dream
By Kym Gordon Moore
A decadent obsession of creamy rich dark chocolate
chocolate dreams that’s smooth, creamy, rich and sweet
a chocoholic’s paradise slathered in a confectionary coma
a gourmet delight, a melt in your mouth treat.
Cocoa powder transformed into a chocolatier’s fondue
chocolate to cover, chocolate to dip
invaded by fruit, nuts, pretzels or veggies
chocolate to bite into, chocolate to sip.
Dark, white, unsweetened, semi-sweet
milk, couverture, Gianduja or candy coating
desserts, cakes, ice cream and brownies
chocolate mousse, hot chocolate or chocolate pudding.
And so as I stand in this chocolate factory dream
on the blissful wings of a confectioners whisk
I dive into the depths of a skyscraping chocolate fountain
and surface with a silver bell containing a Hershey’s kiss.
