My Merlot Transformation

One glass of Merlot makes my innards tingle Dry wine has a way of making me romantic Two glasses blur my vision, but I'm eager to mingle Half a carafe finds my language less than pedantic No misinterpretation, dwell not on meanings semantic *Entry for Francine’s “Pick a Beverage, Any Beverage” contest October 23, 2011 by Carolyn Devonshire

LOL, beware of any male Soupers you meet who present you with a bottle : ) Soup seems to be working at the moment... I'm missing you too, my friend

Merlot is my drink for the cool winter and fall nights... My Mom always says if its not good enough to drink then its not good enough to cook with.. Thats why I never use cooking wine... Great entry sure to float to the top.. love Michael

Enjoyed the read here Carolyn,, best wishes for the contest..! and i am happy with your comment on the poem reflections by Clintons red mill, i was thinking of the N J poets,, as i wrote this so i am pleased with your approval, i was incorporating the spirit of N J, "i hope" in the lines you questioned perhaps i used the wrong word.? all the best Joe.
