When Valentine’s Day Is Poetry in an e-book with Cat Wine

Cat Wine

She’s wondering
if there’s been
nearly enough verse in a year
to fill a potion glass with cat wine

If then, perhaps, half a tale more
will be enough this year
to lick happiness
catch the tickle feather
teach puppies to meow and fly,
pussies to howl at the moon,
or play with a ball invitation
where the poetess has
the Cinderella glass
half full enough
to dance with the
Prince without portfolio
who owns a pumpkin farm
where a couple of stars can
twinkle in rhythms like
a rhyme wine glistens

Description

We are glowing with poems because from the journey of a dream I awoke happy, enveloped in you under covers, my Valentine. Enraptured in the blankets of home with you, of you, our embrace is the brightness of us, with us. We are the morning together, together in love. An awakening is here to be for real at home, a peaceful passion, a satisfaction day, not dreaming but being in the lightness of us, with us. We are warm being the morning sun, like banners waving playfully above the river of Love, these extremely rippling, our streaming, child to the river. Ripples of the day, we stream like banners waving playfully above a gentle brook, child to the stream. The child’s babble is joyful enough to be a gurgle in a float-along morning. We splash along, embraced by immersion, the kiss of the day, fantastic and better than a dream.

  1. Another one of my favorites…this poem just made me remember that i have a bottle of wine i bought a couple of months ago that i haven’t opened yet. Maybe sometime soon i will. Oh i managed to collect some of the words that were swirling around in my head when i commented on your poems earlier and put them into a poem of sorts. I’m trying to be less scatterbrained and more focused. It’s hard to pay attention to just one thing sometimes when there’s so much going on everywhere.

    1. Thanks. I think someone had a challenge on a poetry site to write about a photo of a cat next to a glass of wine or something, or maybe the cat was in a wine glass? I don’t remember the photo.
