Spin for a Kiss

The empty bottle spins, round-and-round, its long neck beckons me,   
To the flowers in full bloom releasing their scent of sweet nectar,    
The rose I kiss; and I have tasted love for the first time.

    I had just about forgotten that little game until I read about it here. Looks like a good sijo for Tracie's contest.

    Ohhh! Good one!! Spin the bottle is not a good memory for me. Let's just say I kissed a couple of frogs before I found my prince. Sounds like a sweet memory for you!! Blessings, Rhonda
