greater than.

Standard

that moment

when you go to the grocery

to get some ice

for your food

after a wild and windy rainstorm

knocked your power out

 you pull out your bags of ice

only to find

a secret ice cream stash

placed there by a brilliant grocery worker

hidden for later

and your day is made.

 

 

“greater than the tread of mighty armies is an idea whose time has come.”

-victor hugo 

soul-stirring.

Standard

this is not me

but we both

always have green eyes

usually wear glasses

sometimes like to get fancy   

and never fail to enjoy ice cream 

what better time to celebrate national ice cream day than a week before winter begins?

“i doubt whether the world holds for anyone a more soul-stirring surprise

than the first adventure with ice cream.”

-heywood broun
