When Asked To Write Of What I Am Made

When Asked To Write Of What I Am Made

Water mostly,
most in the form
of tea;
a little red wine (read, whine),
and a relentless belief, though quite untrue,
that all that tissue
(both the soft and hard kind)
will endlessly renew–

Why the tea believes that
is hard to say,
though the wine, I think,
has an inkling
of the unsupportability
of such a notion.


For Magaly Guerrero’s post on Real Toads to write of what one is made of.  Pics are  mine. I didn’t mean to emphasize red wine, but I happen to have done this drawing (separately) of a wine glass last night, so thought I’d use.    (The “read” above, by the way, is supposed to be the imperative tense of the word and not past tense.)

  1. Fabulous. I like your tea cup drawing, too!

  2. Tea brews wonderful things. And a splash of wine always makes things so much more interesting. 🙂

    Good to see you here, Karin! Ha, this is delicious (pun intended). I so love the second stanza in particular.

  4. Sherry Marr Says:

    Tea and red wine…..we are alike in those pleasures!

  5. M Says:

    I like the personification of the tea and the wine ~

  6. Love your personification of tea and wine in this one, K ❤️

    I can attest to the fact that one’s tissue does indeed renew itself.

  8. Tea and Wine…interesting…loved the second stanza..
    ….nice sketch!

  9. Jim Says:

    This is a fun read, K. I’ve learned from some place that we are either growing or dying. Since I am no longer counting up but rather counting down now I’m in the latter stage.

  10. Love how you start with the obvious of being water, going over to tea and wine..

  11. “red wine (read, whine),” 🙂

I'd love to hear from you!
