I hope I am not too late for this, because it looks as though https://weeklyprompts.com/prompts/ have already set a new challenge! The reason I am joining this challenge is that the title ‘Beverage’ appealed to me!! https://weeklyprompts.com/2021/09/25/weekly-prompts-weekend-challenge-beverage/
I also took a photograph of one of my favourite beverages last week.
I wrote a couple of blogs about pubs during lockdown – please see my site if you are interested. Here is a link to one https://plogart.wordpress.com/2021/04/01/pubs-a-community-hub/
Years ago, I also wrote a poem entitled ‘Intoxication’ which follows.
Substances taken may lead one to rue
Here I present, some old, some new
You will, of course, have your own point of view.
Take care with wine when on a date
There’s no doubt it can intoxicate
Just make sure your mate can wait!
The Festival of Beer draws deliriously near
Over-indulge and partners will fear
When 6x emanates from the rear!
The smouldering, sweet scent of dope
Lingers in the air to give you hope
No longer need you think of hanging by rope.
LSD and Coke may get you high
Avoid tall buildings if you try
We humans were not made to fly!
Life-giving water, innocent when well
Insidiously leaches inside the cell
You’ve heard the stories; it can give you hell.
Getting stoned on the music of time
Listening to a rhythm or rhyme.
The bouquet of a rose, nose of wine, rich in repose
To inebriate alters the mind-state
So whatever your cause to intoxicate
Beware, the effect, read the sell-by-date.

So, hopefully you can see why the challenge appealed to me. Thank you for the opportunity to share my ‘stuff’!
If anyone can give me advice or point me in the direction of such – how to avoid the ‘paragraphs’ when typing a poem for example, I would be most grateful – being relatively new to WordPress and blogging!
