Tea with dVerse

Such a long time has slipped by since I last played this game but what better way to restart than Tea with dVerse. Thanks to Claudia for the prompt on 5 August. It is just a bit of nonsense but fun to do.


Life is an old tea cup,

with orange flowers painted in bloom,

filled from an old liquor bottle

sip-savoured till dregs remain.

The magic of such a potion

old Obelix could explain

to the dog with yellow-teeth grin

whose love was to gnaw a bone.

To the dragon who melted the Ice Queen

but came close to quenching his flame

and the crocodile soothed by the blues man

playing on his saxophone,

to the black cat counting his nine lives

who always finds his way home.

And the man who can’t stop clapping

as the blue car takes him away

for sip-savoured tea-cup liquor

imbibed all night and day.

My name's Jill but I'm Jack of all trades and master of none. I've been writing, mainly poetry and short pieces for a long time and decided to concentrate a little harder to see if I can master this at least. I paint both the house and pictures when inspiration strikes. I am a country bumpkin who loves to be outdoors and enjoy meeting interesting people.
