An Amuse Bouche

An Amuse Bouche

Come flirt with me
So we might spread
Our wings and fly
To exotic places calling

Come and kiss me gently
Your lips I want to taste
An amuse bouche
To tease me playfully

and whet my appetite
for what is yet to come

    The first stanza has that zing of anticipation that comes with flirting for the first time. Lovely.

    Yesssss! I realized after already posting the prompt that I had missed this fabulous phrase as a starter, and was hoping somebody would get there on their own. I love it! This is delicious.

      Well didn’t miss anything really. Your post was fabulous and I loved everything you included as well as the graphics/videos. I just happened to remember the expression and I thought it went well with your prompt. Thanks so much, it was a fun one! ☺️💕

    was so well done.
