It was the day before the middle of my work week
I had driven off to somewhere to get something to eat.
My inner GPS led me to a familiar place
I was happy to step into an air-conditioned space.
Dessert first, then regular food, I reminded myself.
Into the bakery, my feet did travel.
And I stared at the breads and slices of cake.
“I’ll have one of those,” I said.
But the clerk accidentally gave me two.
No big deal.
Small misunderstanding in communication.
I paid for both
and was happily on my way
Because I have a tasty treat;
One for tomorrow and one for today.
Strawberries for the TCM fire element
to feed heart-felt joy and laughter
and soft sweetness for the TCM earth element.
for comforting softness (with a side of fresh tea)
It’s a win/win.
walking out, then about with
A pair of strawberry shortcake cakes.
Thank you, cute little bakery place. ❤
