No More Toasts

Updated on February 6, 2016
Source

Liquid honey for the dreamer,

A golden well in glittering walls.

Oozing, open, drenched of spices,

A trader’s chest with treasure hauls.


Thick and gilded, nectars drip,

Rolling slowly on parched lips.

Burning, fiery sting on tongue,

Falling, yielding inwards sun.


Heat subsides then to pleasure,

Spices, sweetness burst alive.

Lips licked, to catch the flavour,

A catalyst to mesmerize.


Alas now the bottles bare,

A spectacle devoid of eyes.

No more toasts beloved friends,

We drained and drammed away the hive.



 

On a Saturday Night

      Thankyou LKMore01, I really appreciate you taking the time to read and comment on my writing and I am glad I am managing to get the imagery across in the words.

      It was the well known tale bravewarrior. The one where the menfolk look after the home castles whilst the girls talk about past times, plan the next adventures and curse the day that they were introduced to chocolate!

      Anna,

      I love the sensuality and imagery of this poem. Beautiful.

      Thankyou for your kind compliment, I am glad you liked it. It is about a certain whiskey liquer, made with honey and spices and how my friends and I set the world to rights upon its demise one evening.

      Ok, I've read my first selection of yours and I must say, I'm impressed. Not only did my selection end up in poetry, which I love, but this is a beautiful representation!
