Wrinkled skin: Romance

L. B. Mek


Someone told me, if I

place a Rose

in some bubbly Champagne 

its beauty: would remain 

undisturbed, by the passing

of Time


behold, my love

this bath I have prepared 

please, enjoy - take your


just don’t be tempted 

to sip, while you dip…

    Don't touch the champagne or your sins will destroy you. I'm thinking she didn't listen and is now drowning in the bath. Some just don't listen.

    • L. B. Mek

      well, you say drowning
      but those bubbles, spell out
      that intoxicating tipsy
      in a Rose's, whimsy..
      thank you, dear poet

    • dusk arising

      And such perfume, enriched by the bringing together of two fine vintages of beauty no doubt.

      • L. B. Mek

        no doubt, wise poet
        love your use/placement of 'enriched'
        in your comment..
        thank you!

      • Christina8

        I thoroughly enjoyed your poem LB Mek, it was tantalizing!

        • L. B. Mek

          tongue, titillating - even?
          the mere thought of Champaign bubbles
          will do that to you..
          thank you, dear poet
          just glad you enjoyed the read

        • Bella Shepard

          I love the wit and playfulness of your poem, just wish someone had told me about the benefits of bathing in champagne 50 years ago.

          • L. B. Mek

            that's one refined wit, you wield
            with such ease, dear poet
            thank you!

            A wonderful Metaphor or should I say allegory. My mind revolves around the image of what follows the sipping. A very nice piece though.

            • L. B. Mek

              yeah, an open ended scene
              is much more appealing
              let your imaginations, script
              what happy-ever-after
              you choose to believe - in..
              thank you!
              for such a lovely comment, dear poet

            • Rocky Lagou

              Wow. I want to soak in the bubbly fun!

              • L. B. Mek

                well, erm
                I was kinda going for metaphor
                in reality, it might cost a little
                probably better to go for a milk bath
                (skimmed milk, mind you
                whole milk is kinda pricy) lol
                thank you for joining in the fun, dear poet

              • Neville

                enjoyed to the hilt my friend and then a bit .................................. Neville πŸ™‚

                • L. B. Mek

                  right? a fun concept
                  trust you to identify its quirky heights
                  my cherished friend, thank you!

                • bubblehead95

                  A frisky refreshment. This one has coaxed me to have a teeny sip of that bubbly joy for the very first time. 🀭

                  • L. B. Mek

                    you may be merely joking
                    but I'm currently scrounging
                    the back of my sofa
                    for that loose change, treasure..
                    gonna have to make this
                    a bubbly weekend
                    for we need a little, tipsy
                    in our lives
                    to put up with our beloved London's
                    weather tantrums..
                    'April showers', indeed!
                    (Thank you, I read your 'frisky refreshment'
                    and that just sparked my poetic imagination)

                    • bubblehead95

                      Lol. I see you are already in the weekend before the weekend, so why put in on the weather tantrums! ; )

                    • Vamsi Sudha

                      That was a Love Tact πŸ™‚
                      Dear Mek, your poem already left me intoxicated, what would have been with the lady, not going further to spare your blushes..

                      Romantic feel Hidden between the lines. Great One as usual !!

                      • L. B. Mek

                        ahhhh, what a romantic comment
                        love how you kept it playful
                        thank you! dear Poet

                      • John Prophet

                        What’s the fun in that? 🍾πŸ₯΄

                        • L. B. Mek

                          maybe getting tipsy
                          from your champagne, bath water
                          is perfectly fine
                          will have to rethink that last line..
                          thanks for joining in the fun
                          dear Poet πŸ₯‚
