Your 'unique' poem is a fun, tasty treat!

Beautiful, Laurie. I love not only the arrangement but the tasty words. I can see the ice cream drip (almost).

Helen said...

Love where you went with this!!!

PS .. word verification is 'cremas' how about that?

rch said...

I've binged on your creativity and found it quite satisfying.

Peggy said...

I like this Laurie, the words, the shape and the picture. Good package! I assume this is a photo of a blue bell seed?

Victoria said...

the shaping is fun and hte content makes me hungry.

Jinksy said...

Hurrah! A poem with no black angst to spoil vanilla sweetness...

kaykuala said...

Your verse depicts a nice picture form. It is a clever way of indicating the shape of the cone. It also shows the depleting nature of the ice cream inside. Great Laurie!
