In the words of a french friend, “i’image que tu m’as envoyée a aiguisé mon goût pour… les fraîses”. This translates to “the picture you sent me has raises my taste for… strawberries”. These fruits, rivalled only by the smooth cherry in innate sensuality, come as the harbinger of summertime. In the wild, the mix of tart and sweet red berries dot the landscape, swirling and twirling a thicket of flory. In the store, they come packed by the carton, shopper peering carefully through each cellophane wrapper in hopes of finding the perfect, the red, the ultimate in Strawberries
. Not a bad choice for an evening of seduction, the Strawberry
has a green button top that fits easily between fingers. And more importantly, it’s a berry that fits even more easily between parted lips. It is truly a beautiful fruit.
Without sounding fixated on the Beauty
of this beautiful fruit… imagine for a moment that your partner as a strawberry, lightly dusted with confectioners’ sugar or slowly dipped in warm, creamy chocolate. Or just enjoy you lover as we most often do the strawberry- plain, and at its essence, beautifully ripe. Just like your perfect lover, this strawberry is such a beautiful fruit.
