It’s cold and it delights my tongue
Like a funny song that you’ve just sung.

It’s creamy and sweet;
It’s a luscious treat.

It’s delicious and it’s made of milk.
It’s frosty and it’s smooth as silk.

It improves my attitude and makes me happy.
Now get me some and make it snappy.

It’s what I long for in my dream.
Why can’t my breakfast be ice cream?

Ice cream by mark-cruz-334535

 

The best flavor of ice cream is vanilla.
It’s a well-known fact.
Vanilla is the flavor against which all others are judged.
Vanilla is the standard bearer, the brand prover.
If you have a fine vanilla, you have a fine ice cream, indeed.
Of course, if vanilla is too plain for you,
You can liven it up by mixing in some cherries,
Or put it between chocolate and strawberry for a Neapolitan vibe.

No, chocolate is the best flavor of ice cream.
It’s a well-known fact.
Chocolate is what everybody craves.
But if chocolate is too tame for you,
Mix it up with some nuts and marshmallows, reminiscent of rough roads.

No. The best flavor of ice cream is butter pecan.
Adventurous and refined.
You don’t need to add anything to it.
It’s perfect the way it is.
It’s a well-known fact.

My offering for The Daily Post prompt: flavorful.

ICAD Day 35: Ice Cream

Chocolate chip mint, because it’s so visually appealing; but I actually prefer pistachio, vanilla, rocky road, or strawberry. Sketched in pencil, then filled in with watercolor.

I am participating in the Index-Card-a-Day Challenge and World Watercolor Month. For the rest of July, I intend to paint a little watercolor every day, just big enough to fit on an index card. Search for the hashtags #icad2016 and #WorldWatercolorMonth on social media if you would like so see what other participants are doing.
