A poet that I recently stumbled upon, and has linked up to One Shot, is Shay aka. Fireblossom. Shay has an entrancing style that grips you and just won't let go. The following is a poem from the early days of Shay's Word Garden. Know you will enjoy them, as I do. Thanks Shay! ~Brian
Bake until Golden, Sweeten to Taste: A Poem By Shay
I searched the sun
Which was the color of a sugar cookie,
But in the end,
The day hoarded you for itself--
Leaving my face tilted in the window
Like an empty plate.
I hid my name in a honey jar;
Did you think
A thing as simple as a sweet tooth
Could sing to you like that?
I have many recipes,
But just a single sweetheart;
And I can use many wiles
All for a common cause.
Follow your craving,
I'll be waiting...
Come to my kitchen, now Love, now.
I will distract you with temptations,
And when your eyelids fall to savor,
You'll never notice
The softly closing door.
