Hello and welcome once more to Haiku Friday! Today’s prompt words from RonovanWrites Weekly Poetry Prompt Challenge are Tears and Wine.
These words reminded me of an experience I had the year my first book was released. I was celebrating the release of The Basement with friends. We were drinking wine and one of my friends decided to toast to my future as a writer. What she said moved me to tears and one of my tears fell into my glass of wine. I announced to everyone what had happened and was ready to toss the wine when my friend asked, ‘Are those happy tears?’ Of course I said yes. So she waved her hand and said, ‘Then it’s all good.’ I drank the wine after that.
Hopefully you’re still awake and I haven’t lost you after that story.
Anyway, that was the inspiration for my haiku this week.

Flow down my lilt face
Happy tear sweetened my wine
Touched by dulcet words
Have a great weekend, everyone! ♥
