Makin’ S’more (s)
The view across the camp fire shimmers warmth.
Watching, you tilt your head and smile -
Three little faces grin over gooey sticks.
I plop grahams and chocolate on plates.
“Mom ! These are the BEST !”, they shout.
Toasted marshmallows and rosy cheeks
Shining eyes and sticky lip grins -
Looking over this hot mess of a family,
I bask in the heat of the moment,
Answer your smile with a smirk.“Let’s make another; whaddayasay ?”
... playing with the words ... and the theme ... is it hot enough for ya ? Such a greeting, but it seems funny that we can be miserable in the heat of the day, but cling to the warmth that comes around a campfire or glory in the hot stickiness of passion, or welcome the warm glow of rosy cheeks from kids hot from play ... heat and warmth ... hmmmm
