Ah! So vivid and lovely.
I really enjoy your Tuesday poems, Marilyn!
Thank you, Jennifer! I am out of town and was all done watching junky cable and was about to turn in when I felt my conscience nagging me … so I came down to the hotel business center. I’ve been working on some big projects lately, so I really need this weekly “assignment” to write a new poem. 🙂
Wow–that’s dedication! (It’s good to hear that you’ve got projects going, too.) I’m so glad you’re making time for new poems!
I greatly appreciate the ability to express a lot in a short space…
Thank you so much, Marie! It was short because I was writing from a hotel business center right before bed, but now I think it’s kind of nice that way because the beer that inspired the poem was in a little sample-sized glass, and every sip seemed to tell me a story about the ingredients and the care that went into making the beer.
i want to grow where you are…that is really cool line…after the first three lines i thought it was going somewhere but nice turn in the fourth…
Thanks, Brian! I wasn’t quite sure what I meant by it at first, but I wrote it anyway. Maybe I was still under the influence of the beer I’m describing, plus its companions. I very much enjoyed “beer flights” — little 3- or 4-glass samples of craft beers in Denver. 🙂
this really makes me smile. I agree with Brian, I want to grow where you are, is a really cool line.
Thank you, Shawn! The beer that inspired the poem made me smile, so I’m glad the poem itself made you smile. 🙂
Your like button would record my hurried admiration, but I wasn’t willing to leave the page without that acknowledgement. Truth is, I didn’t like it. That’s just the button talking. I loved the effect this had on me. I was (wait for it) poetic!
Thank you, Lynn! I’m really glad that when I was about to turn in that night, I decided to go down to the hotel business center for a minute first. It’s a short little sketch, but I’m so glad you liked it!
love “and I
want to grow
where you are.”
Thank you, Ruth! I was in Denver on business, and when I took my first walk around, I didn’t really “get” it. But by dinner on the first night, I really started to — and not just because of the beer I’m writing about here. 🙂
That last line is wonderful….beautiful writing Marilyn! 🙂
Thank you so much, Carrie! It is about a beer I drank in Denver, and I thought about the ingredients and how they grew, and how I was experiencing this city I had never been to before.
Sorry — I truly was in a hurry writing that comment (I was supposed to be grading papers), and that rushed behavior is why it has missing words. Your like button would *not* work for me. *I* definitely wasn’t, but *it* (the poem) was,indeed, poetic. I hope I learned a lesson here!
Oh, don’t worry about it! I was challenged, too, because I was out of town and using a hotel business center, and I couldn’t attend to comments for a few days because of slooooow computers. 🙂
