Monday Adieu

A clear glass dish
Holding Gemstones of Spring -
Deep Purple Blackberries
Magenta Raspberries
Royal Blue Blueberries
Burgundy Strawberries
Sprinkled with sugar, glistening like diamonds
Then slowly liquefying in the pink juices of the

Warm from the oven
Just baked butter cake
Simple is best,
Just a splash of vanilla at the end
Ice Cold metal bowl bearing
Cloud-like mounds
Just whipped cream
Barely sweetened
What better way
To bid adieu
To a Monday?
