Promptly Late As Usual

Wednesday's prompt at Poetic Bloomings:  The Naani form. 

Do we really listen
to what others have to say
or are we simply waiting
for our chance to speak?

***
Wednesday's prompt at Poetic AsidesWrite a dessert poem.


I seldom leave room for dessert
except for the time when
I tried a new plate
from an unfamiliar menu
and was disappointed
to the point of thinking,
with each of the few
regrettable bites,
that we'd stop for dessert
on the way home.
And we did.
Dessert was ice cream -
mint chocolate chip.
I savored the cool, crispness
and let the chocolate pieces
melt on my tongue.
