Feb 17 & 18 prompt and a poem

Today’s  prompt is “buried on mars drink wine day” -yes – this is one thing I won’t be doing. I love wine … but none on hand. I have paint though – and canvas. So maybe I’ll paint wine.

Once Upon A Wineglass
(Wine and Writers)

The six glasses sat beckoning
and it’s been a long day.

The steward slid the half pour in,
subtle yellow Sauvignon Blanc standing in a round.

Hard edges of the 2015 Villa Maria was my morning;
a Grecian shanghai across the seas, unfinished, uninvited.

2014 Peter Yealands, an alternative bus;
it got me there with two minutes to spare.

2014 Infamous Goose, a mid-priced bouquet;
pleasant flavor offset by technical glitches in the email.

2015 Kim Crawford, an audacious fruity intention;
a well-crafted giggle to dispell afternoon’s gloom.

2013 St Clair – this would be walking out the door;
bright fruit notes, a smooth finish

2014 Greywacke – closing the day with gourmet;
crème brulee and unhindered words.


And, from today until the 19th,  take 15 minutes to inventory your birds, yeah? Post your findings at  birdcount.org.
