They spill!
Of her he’d had his fill
He tipped the table
Her oranges, apples, pears
Surprised the tea cup biddies -
Set them on their ears -
Then, with her priceless lacey cloth
Had wiped the floor of fruity froth
Hence he meant to finish the job 
Attacked the bottle with a fork
Laughed, then pulled the noisy cork

    You have crafted an elegant poem out of a simple kitchen incident. Such is the power of imagination. It is God gifted. Your poems inspire me. Have you published a book? Incidentally my collection of poems titled The Rainbow of Dreams has been published by Createspace of Amazon and is available from Amazon. Thanks for your kind comments on my poem The Town Called Sintra. Tell me before coming if you need any help. I'll stroll with you in the gardens of Sintra and discuss today's lustful society.

    I have always loved the element of a surprise or twist, so this fulfills nicely. I've got to read more of your work; you deserve it for its quality--and for the great things you have said about mine! Prepare, my dear.
