    we fed each other
    dreams & hopes
    like
    plump grapes
    and let the
    sweet juice
    run down our
    faces

    happy to
    share the
    moments
    when there
    were no
    worries
    just our
    grape
    dreams
    &hopes

    but we left
    a few outside
    in the sun
    ~~~~~~~~~~
    raisins
    taste just
    as
    sweet

    I read you

    and you never disappoint. I feel you. But I know it's so much deeper. You cause the mind to stretch. My head hurts, Alyce! (stop doing that!!!!!)

    Much love for what you share,

    CELA

    Alyce ... dear darling sweet Alyce!

    you know the tartness in some grapes
    that you taste before the sweetness settles in

    well ...

    my mouth is still watering

    Awesome!

    :heart:
