Wine !

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Grapes from vineyards
plucked as fresh and good
kept in wooden casks
matured to change with time
the name is sparkling wine !

Is love, like those grapes ?
held like prize of gold
kept in a warming heart
nurtured and cared with time
Could you change its name ?

I love the music. Speaks volumes....

And your sweet little poem is gallantly intoxicating.

Funny I should read this because just the other night I enjoyed a very fine bottle of this poetic elixir..Enjoyed it to the last drop...

And just like the last drop...the third and fourth lines of your second stanza strikes a chord...

because..

I must say...
( thinking here of circumstances in my life) that...

yes...

Love is indeed akin to grapes..

pressed grapes...

smoothened and preciously valued by time when kept in a warming heart.

Bravo!..( bowing to you )

Ah, I simply must enjoy a glass( or two) tonight to toast your words...

Cheers!

ps: responded to your perky comment in my bloggy :>

LADY LUXIE said...

Sorry..I seem to be littering your comment section with my comments..But I have been musing a bit..

I just have to say that I love poetry and have secretly written just a few myself ( during moments of feigning lucidity I guess)..I have never blog published anything though..never shown anyone..

and there is one I have written so many years ago that is most important to me..tucked away..

Reading your poetry inspires me to maybe..someday share it as well...maybe..

Jac, so glad you're back from hiatus...I live very close to the wine capital of Canada so I am partial to everything that has to do with wine...

Poetry and wine or poetry about wine, are right up my alley! :)

Lotus Reads said...

Ooops, in my haste, I forgot to say, WONDERFUL poem!

Mizrepresent said...

Red, red wine makes me feel so fine! :-)

I love this post, Jac! I'm just praying that "marinating" in this cellar, "cask" for so many years does not turn me into whine! LOL!

Nea said...

ah, lovely poetry, Jac.......very refreshing. I am enjoying both your pictures and poetry and music.

Anali said...

red red wine ,
stay close to me ,
don't let me feel alone........UB40,
I saw this post way back late, though wine is always associated with romance and love, which need years of curing and cherishing, then only it reached the perfection of taste, so also love.Great poem Jac
