Petrichor (doublespeak)



I want sunsets
   (irish whiskey)
Stardust
   (margarita) 
Kisses deep
   (red sangria)

Scribble me, love
   (storms)
Scent of yesterday’s rain 
   (stirred chaser) 
between bedsheets
    (tipsy drunk)
lavender & roses
   (tangled kamikaze)

  5. Nice continuation on the last prompt. I forget the name of the form with the echo discordant second lines. I did enjoy that one.

  12. This is my favorite of those written for this prompt. Seriously hot, romantic, lusty, seductive, soft, hard, yummy ... every sexy adjective I can think of. You walk in the middle so well, not being too softcore, but not going too far into the hard, either. I love this piece. I love your work. I love you. Beautiful. Brilliant. Completely Grace.

  18. The jargon well at play. Perhaps a sure way to see that the bottle is doing the speaking!

  19. An interesting prompt that made for some tantalizing poetry. I enjoyed the phraseology you elicited from that mixology.
