Elation

by Carmen Ruggero


Cloud nine brings romance,
ecstasy, euphoria, exhilaration,
intoxication, passion....ahhh!
But nothing beats a shot of brandy,
if you ask me...

It’s a liquid rhapsody in brown,
a seventh heaven, an unbeatable experience
when I close my eyes and swallow...
not to be confused with tree swallows.
No, we fly higher than that.

We fly to brandy heaven
and transport ourselves to paradise,
and swoon with joy into never, never, e-v-er... land,
praying not to fall and hit the ground.
