September poem

a cheeky little drop
moist, bold and refreshing
it cleanses the palette like an exquisite wine
bitter and familiar like lager
warm and flat, cold and sparkling
it is the essence of home
yet carries untold mysteries from afar
warm and comforting
harsh and unforgiving
it brings new hope and ancient fears
I welcome it into my life each morning
a breath of fresh air
the sea breeze.
