Taste of a Poem

Sometimes they come slowly

and sometimes in a rambling rush

a bittersweet melding

of words painted with a brush

I lift my favorite glass

thoughts warm against my lips

there’s nothing like that pesky pest

of a hiccup to make you wince

crack open another bottle

marinate these poems for hours

sit and hope they don’t turn into

festoons of pages gone sour.

    Wine metaphors in poetry – speaking my language! This is charming and funny. The hiccup is like a little pivot point… That reminds me – there’s a Pinot Noir on the wine rack; shall I pour? Happy Weekend, Lynn! Jilly
