Drink of Choice

EER_0588

Sip only the sweet Stuff
Why savor bitter gall;
making puckered faces…
spitting and sputtering…
when there is so much sweetness
all around?
Sipping is a choice we make.
Nourished from flower nectar;
Or
Imbibing acid laced words.
What is your drink of choice?

Today is Quadrille (only 44 words) Monday at d’Verse Poets Pub. The prompt today is sip! Lillian asked us to take it any direction we chose. In light of all the negativity in our country today, I chose to look at it from the perspective of where we find satisfaction; from positive people or negative ones. I had a cocaine addict once tell me everyone has their drug of choice!  For some, it is listening to other people spout their gossip and negativity. What is your drug of choice??

  1. My favorite sipping drink is a Mango yogurt smoothie. Your message resonates well–sipping is a choice. I hate beer or Scotch, so I never sip them. I still have heartburn from sipping moonshine.
