A Word with Laurie...bottleneck

One of the most unusual challenges I've met up with at the Imaginary Garden with Real Toads writing group is today's word provided by poet Laurie Kolp. Bottleneck. Whodathunkit? Not I. But it could be fun.


The photo above is of "bottleneck gourds" and was provided by Laurie as one of a series of inspirational photographs to help us write a bottleneck poem. They look like butternut squashes whose growth was impeded by wide, tight rubber bands, don't they? Poor things.
However, the Wikimedia photo below inspired me to write a haiku based, I must admit, on ancient personal experience.


much fun with bottles
often leads to too much fun
starting with necking

Love it...it could be spin the bottle or drinking...either way it can lead to trouble. lol

Oh my, yes! When we were young, we actually drank our wine out of a box, though (high class folks that we were! Boones Farm Strawberry, if I remember correctly!)

Yes, it may tear away, unleash itself from the bottleneck and lead to things good mothers warn before. Nice write Kay!

Necking can definitely lead somewhere......perhaps to bottlenecked indeed. LOL.

Ha! That's very cute. Made me think how much I miss those days, when 'necking' seemed deliciously naughty.

So funny! This could be a note on the back of Boone's Farm... or colored condoms!

Wonderful! Those were the days. Don't you just love the word 'necking' - so many happy memories in one little word.
