Delicious on my Tongue

you cooked me a meal
so delicious I barely stopped
between mouthfuls
the richness of its flavour
imprinted on my tongue
oblivious to the knowledge
that it wouldn’t last for long
I wiped my lips on a napkin
wishing for another taste
ignoring the red wine
in my glass in case
the piquancy went to waste

My response to dVerse Poets Pub Tuesday Poetics: Impermanence

Merril is our host for this week’s Poetics, and she tells us that she has been thinking about impermanence, something many poets have written about. She has given us examples from Basho, Robert Frost, Yeats and Jane Hirshfield.

Merril says that there are all types of impermanence, which can be a good thing, hence today’s challenge is to think about impermanence, things that are transient, or things that have passed their time, something different or unusual, and write poems about it, in any style or form.
