We will never turn to salt

Do you remember?
That serene day in winter?

We spent it on the beach,

Ice cream filling our mouths.
You devoured strawberry
And I stuck with mint.

Our hats kept us warm

And our scarves choked our breath.

We walked for such a while.

I decided to turn and look back.

That distant ice cream truck

Was a speck against the sky.

And seemed to me, alone.

An ice cream during winter? Not in my neck of the woods! Still, nice poem.
