Poetic Thursday: Tempting

Happy October, everyone, and welcome to another Poetic Thursday with Pam and her boys at Two Spoiled Cats.

This is the ‘sweet’ photo we were given for this week’s poetic inspiration:

And here is my poem:


Cheesecake, tarts and chocolate eclairs;
a sweet-tooth’s heaven,  I do declare.
The aroma greets you outside the door,
tempting you to buy even more.
Sugar and flour, so let’s be clear:
there’s certainly no health food here.
But I’m not a big fan of cakes and pies,
just don’t let me near a basket of fries.

Yesterday,  my friend, Janet, and I met for a visit and iced tea at our local bakery.  I thought of this photo when we saw their display of ‘goodies’.  But we were good and resisted the temptation.

Would you be tempted?
