It was a slap, more than a punch.
A Spanish back of the hand,
more than a puñetazo.
No leading up to the main course
with some pequeños platos
to help acclimatise,
to give one a taste of what was to come.
Coming to the end of our visit to Cordoba, in Andalusia, South Spain, where it has been scorching. The heat really hits you! Linking this to d’Verse poets and this week’s Monday Quadrille which is brought to us by Whimsygizmo aka De Jackson who asks us to write 44 words of poetry which include the word ‘punch’ or variation thereof. https://dversepoets.com/2022/09/19/quadrille-160-poems-that-pack-a-punch/
