Ganache

Ma cherie, mon amour, au naturelle
like dew drops upon rosebud petals,
champagne bubbles tickling my nose.

Sweet crème fraiche atop fresh picked berries,
whip cream dollups daubed scoop by scoop
on thick chocolat pâtisserie.

Quite simply put, my dear,
you are my ganache.

    DeLICIOUS.
    I love that “ganache” can become “Guy Nosh.” 😉
    I’m hungry now, though. And I haven’t had refined sugar since August. Which makes you a bit of the devil, ma’am. But your words are so delicious, all is forgiven.

      OOOHHH….laughing I am! Yes, yes, yes……you got it! 🙂 So sorry (well, not really) for tempting you. I must admit, I did take my visiting niece to Sweet Sak Bakery on Saturday for an absolutely delicious cinnamon roll! This delicious bakery is literally a 3 minute walk from the apartment we are letting in St. George’s Bermuda till March 29 — AND they leave their door open and the aroma escapes out onto the street. Good thing it’s Lent — I’m allowing myself a trip inside their doors for one treat per week! 🙂 Looking forward to getting back to reading my dVerse friends…….great prompt! 🙂

    This is delicious… I love how you used alliteration.. .it so much accentuate the love in this… like a dance of sorts… and ganache sounds perfect to have as love (for real and metaphorically)

      Thanks, Bjorn. I tried to figure out how to use ganache as a verb……as in “you ganache me” …or “ganache me”…but settled with this and was happy with it. 🙂 Wonderful to have my niece visit — but now am back to reading and writing. Shall do my reading this evening! 🙂 Going out to enjoy the deck view of St. George’s harbor now.

    Oh, dang–now I have such a hankering for une belle patisserie comme ca. When I lived in Paris I had no money and had to pass a Patisserie on the way to the Metro twice a day. Pure torture, it was.

      I have such a sweet tooth! My mom had “her” candy bar and I was never allowed to go in it as a child. The forbidden becomes the obsessed! 😦

    I assuredly would rather be the ganache than just this plain old “dip”. Quite appetizing as poems go. I grow stout on your words! 😀

    Chocolate petals
    of taste buds
    flow over
    dance
    of tongue
    in soothing
    songs of sugary
    nirvana.. cupcake
    bliss bubbles of heaven
    over flow as real for now..:)
