licking the line between 
chocolate and vanilla

    It's great to see such a well-crafted ice-cream haiku: that "licking the line" is a very effective start to the second line, with a well chosen end word "between".

    By having twilight instead of a summer afternoon, you have also added an extra depth, and layers.

    And to end it all, it's just a darn good short poem!

    All I can say is I wish I had written it. What a great poem!! And just yesterday I purchase chocolate/vanilla swirl frozen yogart. Again, a great poem!

    Absolutely delicious! But who said anything about ice cream?

    I, too, feel that it is extremely well written and wish that I had written it.
