Sweet Lover’s Tea

16 Nov

Oh boy, I just spilled more honey

in her tea

than I expected!

It’s still dripping;

no matter how I turn the jar.

I swipe the opening

with a willing finger;

licking it, putting the cover on tight,

I suspect, I’ll be as sweet

as her tea, tonight.

    Smiling . . . I don’t think anyone can open honey without licking their finger.
