Go Ahead. Roll the Dice.

 


Go Ahead. Roll the Dice.

And so it unfolds ~

a tempting delicacy

on a glistening silver tray

sugar-laden phyllo 

luring the senses

beckoning one taste

of Eden’s secret

but be forewarned 


cheating is 

a nutrient-rich 

harbinger

bolting shut 

home sweet home

and all its

familiar comforts 



Today’s poem was inspired by Metaphor Dice, with host Margaret Simon on ethicalela.com as part of the November Open Write. My rolled metaphor is in bold.
