BANANA FLOAT

BANANA FLOAT

A Poem by Betty Hermelee
"

pulled by the river, not crushed by the river

BANANA FLOAT

River current
totes me in
ripples of fantasy
my spirit, a banana float
allow echoes of water
to swish my core
jugs of sweet wine

I understand and appropriate!!
The words in this poem are perfect for the title- every word blends beautifully just like all the ingredients in a Sundae and melts wonderfully. This poem feels full of ecstasy and happiness and relaxation and it really shows through its words. Pulled by the river is wonderful touch, too. Thank you so much for sharing. (:

Hi, and thanks for your thoughtful review
Best, B
Banana floats, yummy. My mouth is watering Betty. Your little poem is a fantasy delight. Far better that the river carries you along on the flow than crushes you. Go with the flow is far easier than fighting the current. Sending you all the best from across the pond.

Thanking you dear poet :)
Like aged wine, rivers can taste as good to the soul.
To coast along as easy as taking a swig.

Interesting. :)

“Swish my core “

It has a splashing sound, a primal sound
a fountain of ambrosial wine
from the core where the feelings adore

It is good to escape this life and all that it throws at us even if only for a brief moment. My escape is a beach in the Maldives that we visited just before Covid in early 2019.
Good morning Betty, hope you are well

Afraid I don't drink but I do like the structure of this if I can not comment on the subject. And of course it is more than just about alcholol.

I'm never sure what most poems infer,(simple mind) but I do relate to that Banana float which I used to consume in gallons until heartburn put an end to it all
