Bewitched

Spread the love

Oh! colour me shades of cerulean blue, 
and wipe smudges of despair and woe.
I whisper incantation amidst whistling
sleet and snow. 

Gather toasted pecans with shortbread
cookies and add succulent red cherries;
a recipe, well-suited for igniting an old
romance. 

Let worries vanish with scented smoke,
prepare apples and oranges for sangria
wine. I smiled, as he reached out to me 
beneath pale moonlight.
