This photo was taken by me in Canada on a recent business trip. The hotel bar specialized in absinthe cocktails and had a bit of an olde world decor to it. Antique style rich woods, bolster cushions, and dark red velvet curtains held by large brass rods.
After a 14 hour work day and a strong desire to get a full night’s sleep, I decided to try what the waitress referred to as the “Montreal Margarita” off the specialty menu. The drink included all the traditional margarita ingredients plus maple syrup and absinthe. Seemed appropriate for being in Canada to order the cocktail with the maple syrup in it.
It was excellent and complemented my dessert of berries also with maple syrup.
The decor and lighting definitely called for a photo.
And now, I’m making it this evening’s photo writing prompt. . . we will see where it takes me. I really have no idea.
Salt lining the rim reminding me of icy winters
Stormy seasons past
Missed flights and time spent missing you
Now I’m drinking alone wishing you were here
Wanting for this to be an olde world vacation
The sweet liquid gold in sparkling crystal
Allows me to imagine
I am somewhere else in time and space
You are with me and this is a dining car
We are traveling by railroad
Across the vista of Canadian winter
Our bodies garbed in the formalwear of the age
Soft silks and rich colors adorn my arms
I reach out and sip my drink
We toast to times past, present, and future
We toast to ourselves and those we love
We toast to now and forever
We enjoy this moment together in my mind
This spirit will hold the illusion for tonight
Tomorrow is another day
275 Days to go.
Note: the photos are mine, this prompt is only for me.
