Almond paste,
ooh, that taste.
Chocolate covered
or even smothered
inside a cake–sweet surprise.
When I see their colors, my eyes
get wide. Green, pink, yellow, red.
Shaped like fruits, candy instead.
Have yourself some marzipan,
from a reliable artisan.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are in the process of returning to New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
