Poem of the Week -Saturday March 19

The weekend has come for our relaxation.The best relaxation after good sleep is indulging in good foods and drinks .With our theme on "Food,drinks and Indulgence" this week ,we had many talented writers making poetry out of the main ingredient of our life and linked them to Poetry Potluck.

Now ,coming for that one selection- Welcome all on-broad .As always,choosing one among a dozen pearls is very difficult.With that task of selecting only one , we present here one such entry "Cocktail - Pink Lady ". 

Mary Magdalene Krislin Neo, Ting (S.Pike) ,the author of Tingtasy blog loves seeing and expressing topics from a controversial scope, capturing 'stories' in each picture she sees.She is a wonderful writer from Singapore.You are welcomed to her blog with lovely BG music.Now for the Poem of the week, she gets her poem displayed on Jingle Poetry .

Cocktail - Pink Lady

Immersing in soap,
It seemed I am getting in
Nothing of fatal,
(But) of something soft, gentle and sweet

Cheery seated, smiling
Would I ever be as it?
Unsweetening sweet pumping itself in me,
Historical secrets flashing as I sip my drink

Sipping in the soapy taste,
As though my inner I, am bathing
Found myself lying in a bathtub with bubbles,
Surrendering myself to where this bath will take me

Pink Lady, Pink Lady,
The same name as others used to identify me
Was I this soapy like this glass of cocktail?
Like the cherry in this cocktail drink (Pink Lady),
Dispensable, my existence is….
