The lures appear out of nowhere and weigh next to nothing.
Light and airy – they sneak quietly through life,
They are translucent, barely visible and noticeably weak.
They do not have a specific gravity of serious sins.
Quickly, in ad- hoc mode, they justify the offenses.
They do not leave the marks of their stay in memory
They abandon responsibilities, forget the dates on the calendar
They sit comfortably in a chair
and fly to the blue realm of dreams,
where the aromas of coffee are entangled in the whiff of the cheesecake or apple pie.
No regard for calories ,
they add cream and delicacies to the ice- cream,
They melt in the mouth the sweetness of stuffed chocolates,
In the evening they serve a glass of champagne with strawberries.
On the sunny and warm days they invite one to walk to the park
to buy from a florist the bouquets of violets
with their last few pennies.
The blameworthy and reckless, they do not worry about finances.
Small enticements and small fibs know each other vey well.
They together discount the extraordinary beautiful handbags, dresses and shoes.
Sometimes they occasionally purchase the colorful
scarves and the beads.
Innocent sins are full of irresistible charm and grace,
And as water droplets falling on stone systematically,
They crush the monolith of serious standards and steadfast rules.
