I'm following Miguel's suggestion and posting here about myself. I posted on this forum to share a poem I wrote about a beverage popular here. I like finding ways to share my writing, with people who have an interest in the subject matter. It seems to work better than my site with it's nine members. Thanks for the opportunity share.

Welcome... I read your poem, and it suggests you've had absinthe, unless you're just being poetic. :tongue:

What have you tried so far?

Welcome! Maybe one of these days I'll get back into poetry behind my girlfriends back and write an absinthe poem.

Actually, I should probably get on this, considering that the last poem I wrote was an eulogy to a fauxsinthe.

Brilliant prose. This 'distillery' is the reason geographical name restrictions are bullshit.

Welcome to the WS forum, Aaron! :cheers:

Thanks for sharing your poem. I do enjoy reading poems and literature inspired by the Emerald Muse. :thumbup:
Does Minnalouche know that his absinthe
Will pass from change to change
As emerald clouds to opal,
And yet nothing will change?

Still he drinks opaline.

You're right, I've had the privilege of imbibing the fairy. I've tried Serpis, La Fee, La Blanche, some nasty Czech crap, and some nasty crap I have no idea where it came from. Yes I have seen "powerless fan blades spin". Seems bitters have a bit more kick. Lesson learned.
