Elicitvia Daily Prompt: Elicit


Words and Wine

Oh, the influence, the power, the ability to inspire

language once sensibly contained behind stiff lips

now liberated,  falling freely from the tongue

usual thought process of measured words,

calculated ideas and protected emotions

abandoned –

burgundy or blonde

the nectar’s knack will elicit

a song, a ditty, a round

opinions unpopular freely shared

acclamations of love ill-considered

as the genie, escaping the bottle

diatribes boisterous and nonsensical erupt

poetry is uncorked

verse lyrical or profane

both evoke spirited sentiments

of love for forever or just for now

In Vino Veritas

in wine, truth
