Ode to Key Lime Pie

I breathe in the cool
and salty Florida air
and marvel at the slowly setting sun
drifting into the blue sea.
My hungry eyes gaze
at my luscious prize.
With trembling fingers, I snatch a fork
and begin to salivate.
I lean over
and inhale the heavenly aroma.
My fork slowly glides through the pie
like warm butter,
cutting off the perfect
bite of delicious wonder.
I bring it to my mouth
like I haven’t tasted food in weeks,
and close my eyes.
My tongue anticipates
the tart flavor of bursting limes.
Mmmmmmmmmmmmm
I let the creamy goodness
dance with my excited taste buds.
The graham cracker crust
releases its cinnamon goodness
into the sour lime.
They twirl into a culinary delight.
I look back down
to find that it’s vanished.
Until next time my friend-
My Key Lime Pie.
