Perfection in the potency of this Haiku!"Needy" monks - chuckle.Brings to mind a visual of secretive, wild behavior behind closed walls that we never get to see or hear about.
Dave, years ago I wrote this:Autumn's new wine, "Novello",the velvet stepping forwardof tiger's paws.
I'd want to save that wine for myself too:-)
I know hunners of people who drink the tonie all the time. It's the tonic of Glasgow youth, Glasgow neds, and general malcontent. Personally, I've only ever drank it a few times, and it is so sickly sweet, I really can't handle it. Big in our news recently, for the buckfast bottle is used as a weapon of assault. I've had one over my head myself actually, couple of stitches, few years ago. Those Monks, can't hold them responsible...maybe God? ;)
Love this. Have been writing haiku poems in the evenings, to record my day. It's very soothing.
Me too! I love this! Every Christmas I order fruitcakes for family members from a monastery in Berryville, Virginia ... Your Haiku has provided me with a 'wonderful' image of these monks as they pour brandy on their masterpieces ........
Hmm...pour me a glass, please!
dave a sniff of that would be good for me right now. i love the trappist beer from a small nastery in holland. those boys know what the lay person requires when the spiritual world is at more than arm's length!!!! steven
If I were a monk, I'd be needing some tonic wine.
Nice, DaveAloha, Friend!Comfort Spiral
You're on a haiku bender, Dave!
I'm not sure what buckfast tonic is but it sounds pretty potent if the minks can enjoy it and it's too strong for the rest of us. Wonderful images here in the words. they contrast the secular and the Religious, heaven and hell, spiritual and ordinary and all that awesome stuff. Thanks Dave.
Thanks allI must admit I thus indulged myself, Kass,although mainstay was intended to apply to the coffers,I'll join you Ronda!Interesting thought McGuire, I suppose the buck stops with Him! Responsible but not culperable, eh?Love it Helen!I'm sure Steven!Welcome Tara and thanks!Thanks Elizabeth. It's a tonic wine.
too potent..... hmmmmm
Dave I laughed at the 'I don't really know me.' I am going to use that from now on too.xoxox
A Haiku with rare spirit Dave.And if you're pouring samples.....
