at the Careen Canteen.
something sipped, from
sun-kissed chamomile tea
-bled phrase on the rocks,
Come on in,
here’s a g(r)in
with a hint of wry.
Before last call, we’ll shake
it all (fears, hope)
into a slow-stirred sky.
It’s Quadrille Monday at dVerse, and Lil’s got us careening about:
I will have some of that sun-kissed chamomile tea, De. Let’s shake off our cares behind!
LOVE this! As always you are a master at divided words (can’t remember the poetic official word for that). The Careen Canteen….how original is that! FUN use of the word and great post!
Oh this is brilliant: “here’s a g(r)in/with a hint of wry” — A delight to read!
Fun read! Loved the way you kept it shaking with (parenthesis) and hyphenated words, my favorite, that “slow-stirred sky” 😍
Nice to read you again. As inspiring as ever.
Hi De — Nice work poet! Please come and visit me, share your likes and your truth! Would love to have you!
Well, now you’ve gone and made me feel thirsty, De 😀
love the slow stirred sky
Oh sounds like to nice place to go for sips.
Oh how utterly delightful …. I’m there.
Oh this is absolutely stunning, De 😀 I so love the “sun-kissed chamomile tea.”💝💝
What a wonderful place to be… more stirred than shaken I believe.
