Wine so fine!

NaPoWriMo was first held in 2003. It is an annual project where participating poets write a poem each day of April. There are optional prompts given by the site for writing. You don’t need a blog for taking part. You just need to promise yourself that you will write a poem every day of April.

one sip, two sip,
my tongue I swirl,
though sometimes,
it makes me hurl.

some groundnuts,
boiled and salted;
while I savor it,
world feels halted.

while I saver it,
my life feels fine;
oh this heavenly
taste of red wine.

The prompt at NaPoWriMo asks to write a Anacreontic poem, which is a sort of a high-falutin’ drinking song. I don’t know if mine can be classified as a song or a high falutin’ one at that, but I chose to write on my love for red wine.

(11th April 2014)


Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
