dVerse Poetics: Muse Mixology

Dee at dVerse Poets’ Pub has asked us to mix a poetry response using ‘bar’ words in an alternate context. Here’s my non-alcoholic offering. By the way, that’s my photograph of a fancy glass of milk in blue.

Soft vespers twist mists of time

Stirred by tears on the rocks

A call for straight up truth

Before the last call of sunset

Insistent elixir of mantras hum

Transforming unquenchable thirst to power

A tonic for drowning one’s sorrows

And turning sour to sweet

About Olga

I have always had an affinity for artistic endeavors and the beauties of nature. The power of the word combined with photography have become my creative spark.

    Love the internal rhyme you’ve got going on here. And deeply intoxicated by the gorgeous wordbump of this line:
    “Soft vespers twist mists of time”
