Essential Spirits

She was like Bordeaux, a tall drink of spirit He was more a hopped pale lager like Pilsner, both gorgeous and super gingered flavors, although clashing mid respective savored aplomb, one so refined the other rowdy after hours, yet they complimented each other in the way they blended their drunken demeanors, intoxicated by mere existence of nature's essential complexities

I agree w/Andrea. Excellent poem, Paloma. The contrasting personalities shown through metaphor is very original and compelling. Your standards remain very high, lady. No inferior quality passes through your pen. Love you always. RW

wow, I love this metaphor for two very different people. It would be hard to find such lovely imagery for me and hubbie. Surely not two peas in a pod!

"rowdy after hours" sounds familiar. A really fun read, Paloma:)

Intoxicating, Paloma, like the beauty that flows from your pen...I want another drink.

They sound perfect together, opposites attract they say. I'm a beer guy and like Victor below, my stomach has paid the price, though I'm not ready to give it up just yet. But, I'll never turn down a nice, smooth, wonderful glass or two of an amazing vintage either. :) Loved this one Paloma. You talent is the perfect vintage for me.
