Sip

Together, our moments, first gently, awaken this
Unexpected, fragile flicker.
Warmth rises from deep within,
Blush rushes to my surfaces,
Exposing my quietest secret.
Your voice is autumnal afterglow,
Baritone whisper a sip of fine wine.
My lips part, always wanting one drop more.

This week’s d’Verse  Poet’s Pub’s quadrille prompt (44 words): ‘sip’.

  1. Thank you so much, Sarah. I cannot tell a lie, the colours were inspired by the colours in the Lady Gaga/Bradley Cooper moment at the Oscars on Sunday. That atmosphere seemed right for this little piece.

  2. So beautifully soft and gentle specially these lines:

    Your voice is autumnal afterglow,
    Baritone whisper a sip of fine wine.

  3. This poem is a gentle little gem. In few words you’ve conveyed what family love is all about!
