Sunday Muse -- Things to Come?


The find 

Steady hands that rainy morn 
A precious find, liquid gold 
Nothing sweet could be better 
Lest it be a scrap of fish 

First his tongue would rim the bowl 
A sample of what to come 
Nectar from the night before 
Lovely ladies celebrate 

Next would be his,  feasting turn 
Sample of their night before 
Asparagus pickled beets 
Filet mignon, Sauvignon  

Dessert of dreams his small bowl  
Tastiest find since he'd left 
Sunday morning dumpster dive

I do like filet mignon! Got a good lipid screen back yesterday, bring it on!

This was sensuous, and surprising - with a taunting wink. Very well written Jim!

I love these lines:
"Nothing sweet could be better
Lest it be a scrap of fish"
I also enjoyed your twist!

Surprised by the end & captivated by the images that came before.

Oh I love this and especially your unexpected ending. Your poetry is evolving and I am so enjoying the journey.

Love the twist from the moving wheel to the the move to an array of food choices. Messy may it seem to start with but it creates the appetite! Great word craft Dr Jim!

Lovely imagery. The last line is the truth of life.
