Red and white swirls
Original as a summer green plant
Santa all dressed up
Small little gifts to sweet children
wrapped in coffee, hot chocolate, and ice cream concoctions
My spirit is energized
My heart alive
My breath is fresh
I crunch it in my teeth
Split in a hundred slivers of joy
Feeling satisfied
Yet wanting more
So glad you exist
Can you guess?
It’s peppermint
