Dining with Desire

Spread the love

[Desire] slipped me a bottle of Gamay,
in the wee hours of morning, I observed
as sleet and snow adorned Swiss chalet,
I smile as he prepared dessert, gathering
as henchmen, of luscious bottle of Gamay,
cinnamon, clove, vanilla, nutmeg and mace;
beguiling further, with grapefruit marmalade
he sought to surprise me with secret recipe;
Oh! straight from heart sang song, conveyed
and soon, rays of sun began to shine outside;
we sealed sweet moment, with bottle of Gamay.

    Sanaa I Luv the romance, I can just taste the desire as that bottle of Malbec is opened.
    One of the rules needs to be observed in your writing of this form however, the rhyme,
    You didn’t get that bit in.

    Here are some links to a few more samples should you want to try the form again

    Grayscaled Hours
    The Outdoor Picnic

    much love…
