Taste and See 

The day’s spilled over
like a tipped cup of honied 
tea, and we’ve run out 
of words. Of time. 

The moon: a lemon lolly
or a wintergreen lozenge 
we long to melt 
on hungry tongues. 


In November, we poem.

    I love the phrase “lemon lolly.” What a fun thing to tongue-flick rapidly on repeat. 🙂

    Is it me, changing?, or your newer magic words? I don’t know. But of late I am seeing a more personal quality voiced in your poems. Whatever any reasons, thank you for these words delivered in your care. Busy you too. Me barely keeping stride.

    Is November one of those poem-a-day months??

    I love November primarily because I get to read you every day.

    Thank you for this thirst quenching poem.

Use your words.
