Happy Holi with Strawberries......

StrawberriesThere were never strawberries
like the ones we had
that sultry afternoon
sitting on the step
of the open french window
facing each other
your knees held in mine
the blue plates in our laps
the strawberries glistening
in the hot sunlight
we dipped them in sugar
looking at each other
not hurrying the feast
for one to come
the empty plates
laid on the stone together
with the two forks crossed
and I bent towards you
sweet in that air
in my arms
abandoned like a child
from your eager mouth
the taste of strawberries
in my memory
lean back again
let me love you
let the sun beat
on our forgetfulness
one hour of all
the heat intense
and summer lightning
on the Kilpatrick hills
let the storm wash the plates

Have your pick

Strawberry shake,tastes really good...

An arrangement by my 4 year old.

Basket of strawberries basking in the morning light.Tasting it is a sweet surender,just surrender.On the inside ,a strawberry is a tunnel to summer,a heart ready for romance,the blush of a young girl's face.Some one once said that the strawberry smells like honeysuckle nights,like the forest after a gentle rain.
Do taste the strawberry....
One bite of it and you will know what I mean....
