  1. Oooh. This is such a good shot, and a sweet haiku to go along with a sweet drink. I’m guessing that drink is…a strawberry drink? It looks awfully a lot like Ribena, which I drank a lot when I was a kid. As Andy said, your shot almost looks like an eye. Great perspective and writing as usual, Imelda 🙂

    1. This one is red wine, specifically red port. The bottle it’s from calls it Ruby Oporto. It is the only red variety I like because it does not have as much tannin as the others, and it is sweeter with rich flavors. There! Did I just convince you to try one? 😊

      1. Ooooh, I see, red wine. I don’t drink wine so I don’t know, lol 😀 You are so kind and classy to offer me a glass of red wine. Thank you so much, but I will have to pass up on it. You can have it 😀

      1. Port wine? Actually, I went to the city of Porto about twenty-five years ago to visit a friend of my then girlfriend. Ordinary people didn’t have access to the Internet in those days, of course, and so it was difficult for me to get much information about the place before I went. I asked my girlfriend what it was like and was told it must be very industrial because they made port wine there. I therefore had an image in my head of a bleak, grey place–like Stalingrad but without the charm. I was delighted to discover it was in fact a very beautiful city sitting along both banks of the Duoro river. I was only there for a few days, but I’ve never forgotten it. I’d love to go back and see it again.
