Thursday Inspiration — Wine and Roses

You gave me a diamond
And a bottle of fine wine
When what I really wanted
Was a cultured pearl, a rose
And much more of your time


Written for Jim Adams’ Thursday Inspiration prompt, which I’m responding to using the prompt word “pearl,” and the above picture. I’m also featuring the song, “The Days of Wine and Roses,” written by Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer, and performed by Andy Williams.

    Bill Withers wrote ‘Ain’t No Sunshine’ after he watched the 1962 Blake Edwards movie Days of Wine and Roses with Lee Remick and Jack Lemmon. It is so sad how alcohol can ruin your life. Great movie and a classic song. Nice post Fandango.

    I remember hearing music like this in restaurants (turned down quietly especially if including melancholy lyrics). Not so much any more. That’s something I like about some Italian restaurants now, old music; even if not exactly old, it can be that different style. There used to be an upbeat — very nice while intended for families — Italian restaurant, in town, playing louder and peppy old music. It has closed.

    Time together…
    Much better
    than
    diamonds.

    More of someone’s time is the most precious gift you can get.
