#Haiku: Claret


-By Linda Lee Lyberg

come sip the Claret

with ruby lips savoring

anguish falls away


Linda Lee Lyberg

My response to Carpe Diem #1232 past regrets and future fears

Here is the quatrain Chèvrefeuille has given us to work with:

Ah! my Beloved, fill the Cup that clears
TO-DAY of past Regrets and future Fears –
To-morrow? – Why, To-morrow I may be
Myself with Yesterday’s Sev’n Thousand Years.

  1. This feels exotic and unapologetic…come on ‘anguish fall away’, because I’m ready to do it all again! Got all this from ‘ruby lips’, lol, my imagination is in overdrive. Love it☺☺
