A Twist of Lemon

comments 14
He smiles 
as I write

                         A twist of lemon,
                     some bitter tonic
                           flowing through
                                 thirsty veins


I smile 
as he draws
a pair 
of eyes

                                    The ones 
                               that brighten
                         the darkest days
                 of our nocturne souls


Chilly air 
swirls into
our empty

                         While I get rid 
                              of commas,
                              full stops—


It all ends 
with a styled, 
stained letter
and a twist of lemon—

                                 As it gently
                                 our vodka
                                  and tonic,

 —And this fine,

    • Thanks so much, Sunra!!!! And sorry for taking so long to reply…lately I haven’t been as active (posting, reading all the blogs I love) as I would have liked..

      Loving your feedback 😊

      Did you try that drink yet? 😄

  1. You’re most welcome, vintageblack! (Anna? I couldn’t quite remember!) I’ve had it before, yes, lol, but I’m not really a vodka gal when it comes down to it. I prefer gin! Ha ha! With a twist of lemon and lime. Refreshing! 🙂

    • Yes, it’s Anna, haha!!! great memory 🙂 yeah..I guess it’s a slightly rebellious take on the classic G&T – Which i still like every now and then (even though I’m no gin gal). And yes, for me too, citrus twist forever – would feel boring otherwise. Have a wonderfully evening, Sunra! 😊

      • Ha ha! My memory’s like a sieve lately. I keep losing pens and forgetting I’ve stuck them in my hair. Citrus twist sounds good! I just can’t handle vodka is all, hence gin! Enjoy your drink and have a great evening too (clink, clink!) 🙂

  2. Wow, simply in love with this ‘fine, short tale’ which is very fine indeed! 🥂

    • Wow, this is such an amazing comment, Ana!! I really thank you so much ❤️. I apologize for taking so long in getting back to you on this, it got originally filtered out as spam 🙁 plus I haven’t been too active on WP this year
