love at first bite.

velvet plump apricots, halved
face down in 
maple syrup and a splash of that ol' Tennessee whiskey
laid upon 
a hot grill over glowing coals to be
charred a little
and then set back into the sugar before being
spooned onto
a luscious mound of vanilla
so utterly
I forgot all about
tiny ribbons of ginger mint though it was no less
absolutely perfect
and easily
one of my most

there's something

there's something about sitting out on the front stoop and watching earthworms stretch all the way from the edge of the rain-soaked walk to eat fallen apple blossoms in the middle of the night
that makes it hard not to be in love with every moment
