Pic and a Word #298: Divine

When the pandemic first hit and the world was running out of toilet paper, the only thing that ran out in our small supermarket here in Tuscany was the wine.


Is this a test?
How could 
get its name 
from anything else
but di vino,
from wine?

In response to Patrick Jennings’ Pic and a Word Challenge #298: Divine

This just in: Yesterday I saw that Visual Verse chose to publish my wacky poem to their visual prompt for the month of January. It is here. To read all the published pieces for this month, click here. It made me happy. Thank you!

This day in my blogging history

    1. Thank you, Donna, I’m glad that you enjoy wordplay too. That year the drought was especially fierce. I suppose this is how it will go everywhere now. There are still many other vineyards left standing though. This one was unlucky.

  1. I love the browns and reds of the (lamented) vineyard near you. It’s a worthy feature photo. And your poem “Divine” is terrific. It must be true!

    Best of all, CONGRATULATIONS on having your poem published! I’m so happy for you — and all your lucky readers.

  2. I love this post. You made me laugh straight away. The de vino wordplay, the fact that wine ran out. I already like Tuscany. Congratulations on your poem. You are a regular VV contributor.

    Love the image of Bestia looking up, it’s such a clever optical illusion. Looks like he’s sitting sideways on a wall next to a choice door. Very clever 🙂
