Haiku Friday – Tears & Wine

11 Sep

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.
