The Tasting

Deep crimson swirls around
Leaving soundless tears in its wake
Rich scents of plum, forest, earth
Give rise to the primal core

Berries caress, brush over waiting lips
Whisper to teeth parted in anticipation
A nibble, a bite, hidden in the lover’s kiss
Grips the tongue, folding to a soft embrace

Swirling against the pallet
Lingering, teasing, demanding
Echoes to be remembered
Long after the sip is done

    Welcome to If It Doesn’t Belong group. Good to have another writer with us. Your portfolio is very good. I look forward to reading you. This is really a wonderful work

  • Thank you! I’m looking forward to getting more words on paper. It’s so much better when they are there instead of rattling around in my head!
