Red Wine and Us

clink glass filled
lingered look eyes to eyes
glass to lips slow
a sip of
liquid redness

read my mind through my eyes
what do I think
lips moist
a taste of blackberry
a hint of cinnamon

slowly grape silkiness
flows over my tongue
you watch me I watch you
cherry plum
warm spice

deep in colour succulent
tannins seduce my mouth
trickle down my throat
fruit that

warming as it enters me
fruits of berries elegant
dusty earthy tones
perfectly paired
like us

    Such a lovely sentiment!
    I’m sure I’ve missed lots of your posts this week – haven’t been able to read any blogs for several days as I’ve been so busy. Just have a bit of time now, so I’m trying to catch up on my favourite bloggers. Hope you’ve been well and work is going better – not getting you down so much πŸ˜‰

    • Thank you for saying so Gabriela, you mean to tell me that you have let ‘life’ get in the way of your blogging? πŸ˜‰ Thank you for visiting, yes I am well, thank you also for asking. The job is going ok now, had a couple of talks with the GM – she really is quite lovely and takes the time to listen to me vent.. 😦 It was more of an issue with the G/F that I work with.. but I am hoping we can get back on track again..just a bit of adjusting was needed. πŸ™‚

  2. Definitely made me think of a hearty, fruity, full bodied Shiraz… Oooh blackberries, and pomergranates came to mind. I don’t think they mix the two or I haven’t seen it, but I definitely smelled it, tasted the notes and so badly wanted a glass. What a fantastic and sensual poem…that you could make me taste it,Mumsy…

    • Thank you also MM πŸ™‚ Hmm I took a wee bit of poetic licence – it was a Cab Sav..but I thought of different wineries etc, so technically probably not all in the one mix…though that would be luverly πŸ™‚ I am so glad you ‘tasted’ and enjoyed honey. xx:-)
