#Haiku: Vessel

Ancient amphoras

-By Linda Lee Lyberg

Amphora vessel

once kissed by warm cherry lips

waits in cold silence

Carpe Diem #1307 The Vessel

Here is the quatrain Chèvrefeuille has given us to interpret.

I think the Vessel, that with fugitive
Articulation answered, once did live,
And merry-make; and the cold Lip I kiss’d
How many Kisses might it take – and give !
