Craving my grandmother’s chocolate layer cake today…
Layer by layer
Baked with love and precision.
White cake, fresh, soft, and spongy.
Homemade chocolate icing
cascading over the edges
dividing each flavor filled layer.
Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter
Tempting us to partake before the meal.
Dessert before dinner
Do we dare?
No…we wait patiently.
The moment arrives.
Layer by layer,
the carefully crafted sweetness is devoured.
The moment goes by too fast.
It was good while it lasted.
Chocolate still lingers on our tongues.
Goodness fills our bellies.
The chocolate layer cake ceases to exist.
Until the next holiday.
