Poets United (warning, may make you hungry)

I didn't think I had it in me to participate in this prompt. I love chocolate; the food of the Gods, but all the words I chose, had a sexual appeal.  Prompt #50 is chocolate; I never was a huge fan, till after I had my children. Maybe I need this drug to soothe my weary, worn out soul. I do think it's appeal is universal, for most. I love how dark chocolate is now considered an  antioxidant! Woo, hoo... yes, for some this is bittersweet, but it gives hope,  that the Gods weren't wrong. ;-D   I hope to visit here some day; It is called the Chocolate Lounge, sounds heavenly doesn't it. Sorry, if I have made you run to the kitchen. I don't have any chocolate in my home, right now. If you have a lot of willpower check out this cookbook.  Off to make an Iced mocha(I have sugar free chocolate syrup). My waist will thank me ;-D





Cascaded thoughts permeate gray matter
remember the first caress mon cher
Romance arrives in elated mood
embraces the memories that arrive
Doors open to calmer, happier times
magic stirred when morsels appear
Facets reflecting lovely joy
savor them
Imprints on mon couer
let them
Linger in passion's promise

Whew! Good thing I'm a vanilla guy.

Sherry Blue Sky said...

Oh so beautiful! Let them linger, indeed! Sweet memories.

Ella said...

Alex-lol you are funny! And a Hot Tamales guy(cinnamon)! Those 3 alarm ones make my eyes water~

Sherry-I think I should of gone in a different direction; I may try this one again~ I loved yours; it was bittersweet, though~

DEZMOND said...

I'm also a vanilla type, but this picture did make me hungry a bit :) Are there any rum, lemon or orange filled ones in that box? :)

Ella said...

Dezzy-Of course, I love maple fudge ones, coconut and orange~ Vanilla is great, but doesn't inspire romance like chocolate. Remember we have that movie
Chocolat, but no Vanilla movie...doesn't seem fair, does it?! We need a vanilla movie, lol~

KarenG said...

Nice! A very passionate ode to chocolate and all things related :)

flaubert said...

A passionate response to the prompt, Ella.

Olive Tree said...

lol...nice, well done. I agree with your opening statement, most of what I picked ended up having some kind of sexual appetite in them. It was harder to write a poem on this topic than any other topic. Have a wonderful weekend.

Andy said...

Laughing...looks like I'm in the right place for a quick choco fix!

Now who said chocolate was an aphrodisiac...or is it just me on a serious sugar high?

Nice one!

Jules said...

LOL, I sit every night and eat dark chocolate. Then I tell myself that sure was good medicine. :)

Here's to great dismal swamp BBQ!

Isabel said...

chocolate.. yummm.

Su said...

Ummm, chocolate. Add some hazelnuts and I'll be useless for hours!

Shelly said...

Smiles to you! Chocolate is great. I'm still having issues with blogger.

laurie kolp said...

Yummy- I've always loved chocolate but just recently switched to caramel.

Ellie Garratt said...

Stunning poem! Now where is my secret stash of chocolate? I want chocolate! Now!

Amanda Trought said...

Great poem Ella! I love chocolate, both dark and milk, recently come up in a rash every time I eat milk chocolate :( but at least with the dark chocolate you don't eat as much and is good for you!

Hilary said...

Hi Ella .. chocolate - why I don't have it at home! Easter egg went in a flash .. ?! Can't wait for Christmas!!

Truffles .. a line of truffles of all varieties .. delicioza .. just think Hilary - that's enough chocolate brain power ..

Love the stimulating chocolate post Ella - enjoy a few this weekend .. Hilary

septembermom said...

Oooh, you can feel the desire and decadence in this verse. I'm a big chocolate lover so this speaks to me strongly. Well done Ella!

Jg. for FatScribe said...

"linger in passion's promise." i like that quite a bit. great post. my two sons and i already have a box of see's candy here at the house, or else, you're right, i'd be hankering for chocolate fix right about now!

Lynne Moncrieff said...

Hi Ellen
You have the most incredible talent, a talent I am in awe of.
I hold my hands up and declare I have a bit of chocolate every day - whether inexpensive or a bit more indulgent I need that piece of chocolate. Should I declare I am having a phase where white chocolate buttons are my little addiction (don't tell anyone else LOL)
Wishes
Lynne

Cindy Adkins said...

Wow, I love this! You have such a way with words!! Amazing! I think that chocolate is the biggest healing food in the world...I'm convinced they will one day discover it cures the ills of the world! lol If it doesn't, I love it anyway!
XO
Cindy

LTM said...

gorgeous... mmmm....

runs off to get chocolate~ :D <3

Judith C Evans said...

Passionate and delicious take on this prompt. Great job!

Madeleine Begun Kane said...

What a sensual, lovely poem.

Ella said...

Madeleine-Thank you; I tried ;-D Thanks for visiting me~

Judith-Thank you; It was a difficult one to do~
I enjoyed your poem!

Leigh-lol, I hope I didn't really make you run off 555 <3 ;-D

Cindy-I so agree, it can cure a lot of things! Soon all of your research will be documented ;-D Thank you for your kinds words~

Lynne-I tried to post Happy Birthday to you, yesterday, but had issues! Thank you, you are kind~ White chocolate buttons, sound so cute n' precious! I like that you admitted the truth ;-D
I hope you had a lovely birthday!

Jg-I am so glad you had SEE's in your home; how wonderful their candy is~ Thank you for visiting me and your kind words!

Septembermom-I would love to hear what your favorite is! I hope I didn't make you over indulgent. I found it difficult when I read all the chocolate poems for the prompt! very difficult~ Thank you!

Hilary-Yes, the secret is out; chocolate brain power..tee,hee! You are funny! ;-D

Amanda-me, too! I get hives, no matter if regular or sugar free. I think it is something to do with soy, for me. Every label says, made in a factor where peanuts, tree nuts and soy were processed. I think you are right, the dark chocolate is easier to have a small taste of~
Thanks for sharing and your kind words~

Ellie-It is my kryptonite; I swear if I want it bad enough, I will make something out of the unsweetened cocoa powder. I hope you didn't over indulge...

Laurie-Do you mean the salted caramel that is all the range?! I can understand this transition! ;-D

Shelly-Thank you; me too and chocolate!

Su-It is mind altering isn't it, but so fun~

Isabel-It was a hard poem to write; I enjoyed reading all of the chocolate poems, but found my willpower dissolving!

Ella said...

Mary-Thank you! I enjoyed yours, too~

Jules-Yes, it is! It is part of the Joy Diet! lol
Dismal Swamp feels like a moist arm pit in hell right now. It is going to be 94 here today; I feel scorched just from watering my plants. I found a toad; he was happy for the rain I provided~ ouch...

Andy-It is You, lol! And millions of us agree; there is something about the food of the Gods that overthrows one's mood! Thanks for stopping by~

KarenG-Thank you, yes Ode to Chocolate should be a cookbook and a memoir~ Many of us could write this one! lol

DEZMOND said...

there was VANILLA SUNRISE movie, but it didn't do any good for heavenly vanilla :)

Ella said...

Dezzy-Thanks for sharing; I'm off to check it out. I know there was a Tequila Sunrise! ;-D

Ella said...

Dezzy-I'm still looking; I did find Vanilla Sky with Tom Cruise...I should have known~ ;-D
