Monday's Poem

© M.J.L.Evans

                               Absinthe Dreams                                      

As the enchanted liquor seizes its prey,
It propels all thought and time astray.
Curios of silver and gold,
Such exquisite sights to behold.

Hearts are beaming

Anise of black and illusion of jade,
A continuum of colours is constrained.
Beauty and beast are combined,
Inspiring the feverishly fervent mind.

Ink is flowing

Bitter wormwood dark mystique,
Herbal glory strained till sweet.
Green fairies dancing round
The hearts of artists to be found.
