Spiced Cider

Posted on October 6, 2015 in Poems / 0 Comments

spiced cider,
cinnamon & nutmeg
swirling aroma, sweet
hypnotic-
liquid apples
melted butter
flour & brown sugar…

taste the leaves
dangling from crooked branches,
swaying in the soft, cool wind.
taste the spice
from pumpkin fields
as the harvest turns
golden.

close your eyes
and breathe in.

taste it on the tip of your tongue
twisting through your mouth,
heat on your teeth-
all autumn stirred together
in a heavy ceramic mug….

spiced cider.
