Colleen’s 2019 Weekly, #Tanka Tuesday, #Poetry Challenge No. 117, “Poet’s Choice of Words”,

This part of Colleen Chesebro’s Tuesday Tanka. This week as it’s the first of not only the month but the year. That means we can use any words we like.

My words are. Wine Bottle I decided to do an Etheree.

Wine

Bottle

Red or white

Even rosé.

Light or full bodied

To tantalise taste buds

Glass container of liquid

Open with cap or pop the cork

You have the power to raise spirits

A joy to behold a bottle of wine

Drink of Me.

Pop my  cork and set  me free, set free and gushing.

Swirl  me round in magic dance. Be dazzled by my sparkling

Take  me slowly, ease  me free slowly  no point in rushing

Smell  my  bouquet and  feel my  body awaking up the darkling.

 

Gently I tingle  on your lips and tongue

Bringing  colour to your face and lighting up your eye

Reach  for me now  your working day is done

Imbibe of me deeply feel me enter you and help you to fly!

 

Feel my heat flowing through your veins

Tease me please me  for I shall rob  your ire

No other  mistress shall you have once I hold the reins.

Once I am inside your brain I will kill  your lust and desire.

The evening

The golden shafts of light cascade through the branches and leaves of the tress opposite

The shadows creeping silently across the lawn usher out the day in preparation for the night.

It is still warm, OH! that’s such a treat .To sit here in the garden wrapped in the evening’s glory

Celebrating  a glorious day , a once in a life time, stunningly sunny perfect story.

 

I was sure I could see fairies dancing, tiny wee beauties leaping and prancing.

Okay it was, maybe a trick of the light , as it flowed through the garden setting me off romancing!

Sipping  a glass of ruby red , drinking in the scene sipping at the wine

It was all so glorious, a precious moment it could be nothing less than divine!

Finally the in the last rays glow , the silent birds  now knew it was time for day to go

Leaving us here all hushed and quiet , basking in pure delight as we lay below.

Colours now all monochrome, gone the golds and greens of day slipped away into black and grey.

Sipping gently on  this succulent  wine, regarding  nights approach, pushing away all remnants of the day.

 

A collective sigh at nature’s glory, we raise our glasses  to her  story.

The flowers bend and go to sleep, the ivy silently and relentlessly creeps

Children from their bedroom windows peep.It has been a wonderful day, hey kids are you still not asleep
