Bringing Fine Wines

    Bringing fine wines in straw lined baskets
    wine aged in casks for few or many years
    Bottles containing the labor of earth
    As the new, refreshed and the aged
    the sparkling, fermented and clear

    They run as the fluids in our veins
    the whites of our sweat, the reds of our blood
    the champagnes of our ideals
    Our bodies as the tinted, the clear and the opaque bottles
    containing the zest, the sparkle and clarity of life.

    We open our minds and souls
    to release the bouquet
    the bouquet of our thoughts
    and the taste of our wisdom
    Released to the palate of our worlds

    Gathering on these days of Thanksgiving
    we join to mix our flavors
    to sweeten our dryness
    and to heighten our senses
    Taking comfort in the robust feelings of each other’s love


    Enjoy our day of Thanksgiving.

  2. Aw, this is very beautiful and very romantic! The thought of a fine aged wine and a fine aged (enduring, never-ending, gets better and grows through the years) love makes me sigh and smile.
    GREAT poem! Great pairing of poem and photo! 🙂
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your precious family!!! 🙂
    HUGS!!! 🙂
    PS…I’ve always wanted to walk on the grapes with my bare feet and have them turn purple. 🙂
