goblets of passion
poured into scenarios of yesterdays
a frame of love

goblets of memory
pour into passion sated
frieze the frame of love

goblets of musing
pour into passion wasted
frieze the frame of love

pour in passion vested

marinate in passion savored
frieze that frame of love

sultry evening when the breeze
draws the scent of trees in bloom

Loved this - absolutely loved this . . . a wonderful stream of consciousness on the "hit and miss" musings that go into the creative process. And what an inspired "take" on the prompt!
