Moonshine Cherries

You’ve got those moonshine cherries

burst in my mouth

have ‘em when I need ‘em

make me think of the South

 

Just like that sparkle in your eye

their moon-time shine

burns a trail of fire

as if by design

 

All warmth and glow

cherries in a jar

black molasses slow

white lightnin’ from afar

 

Kickin’ in again

kisses sweet as pie

all my heart’s desire

Honey, that’s no lie

      1. I like it, but I understand, I used to be able to pound out something in a half hour but now I don’t seem to have anything to say that isn’t preachy or repetitive. I’ve had a go at poems but I’m just not very good at it.
        Keep it up 🙂
