For summertime . . .


I am a glass
tall, slender
full, cool
to your warm hand;
lift me up,
look through me,
see how I bend
take me
to your lips -
drink, drink,
drink . . .

The ultimate in romantic love poetry....great description and imagery. I may have to put this on a card from my wife to me, then surprise her with thanking her for its enjoyment to make her ask where it came from. This is a very enjoyable poem, Gina, and a trip into the soul.....Jerry

Gina, the endless interpretations you provide us are delightful. Thirst, water, glasses, transparency, enough images float through my imagination to quench my creative thirst. I'll sip many times from this potable potic elixir. I bid you peace and love my dear friend. Jon Michael

Maybe it's the heat, but now I'm thirsty, too :) Great image, as well as that within your poem.

Nice. This piece can also be interpreted in many different ways; the glass, drinking...

So many layers to this beautiful poem of mindfulness!

very enticing and exotic...

Reviewed by Paul Judges 7/11/2011
Enjoyed the simplicity of this one.
Reviewed by Kate Burnside 7/11/2011
Just love the clarity, sparsity and purity of the elegance of your words here, Gina. Like good feng shui, you allow the subject to speak its own self and remove your authorial voice from "view". Like white that contains all the other colours within its perfect spectrum. Crystal and class - as glass! :)) xx
Reviewed by J.A. Aarntzen 7/11/2011
I love how there always is a sensuous element to your poetry. Like John says, it teases. It is desire and an invitation to the reader to go after those things that will fulfill them. On a hot summer day like today I will drink!
Reviewed by John Flanagan 7/11/2011
Perfectly delivered, the line breaks
essential timed pauses...suggestions
conjuring, teasing, quenching.
Pure joy, Gina.
