The Dinner Party
Author: Catyrose


Aromas of garlic, oregano and basil pervade the lively room
The fragrance of roses and amaretto floating
Through the air at dusk
Soft candlelight casting shadows
Creating a wistful ambiance

Strawberries laced in sumptuous chocolate sauce
Arousing the senses
Fine wine in crystal clear goblets
Poised gracefully amidst slender fingers

Slivers of red devilís cake
On a rouge tinted platter
Passed around the cozy room
Consumed with such delight

A night cap of amaretto
A tender toast of love and friendship
Echoes through this tranquil space
As we part and go our separate ways

Alone now, yet lost in a comforting embrace
Surrounded in a warm and loving glow
Wrapped in the blanket of friendship
Swept away in this final moment of bliss

------- Author's Notes -------

An account of an evening spent with dear friends.
