Imbibers Meditation – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Sip – dVerse Poets – Quadrille 74





Imbibers Meditation

To sip or not is a question
of consumption or
of contemplation,
to savour,
to swirl,
to inhale,
to dance with liquid
on my palette
an imbibers meditation
a seduction with velvet soul,
I want my days to be sipped
not just consumed.

  10. It’s a fine line between savouring and being consumed, I’d say.
