meringue and whipped cream
as light as Anna fluttering in her tutu
berries summer-sweet

a dessert for the queen of dance
I whisk egg whites add the starch.
shape to mountain cloud
hollow to form a bowl
bake until firm

whip the cream add vanilla and honey
top with berries, reds, and blues and nearly black
a tart reminder that all things aren’t
what you expect but still desire…
