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.
Tuesday’s prompt is “Inside a computer”.
… Which is where it seems I live alot .
I do have two paintings on the Something Red Art Walk in Downtown Salem: RedHead @ Elsinore Gallery & Framing and Tent at World Beat @ CCTV through the end of December – both available for sale.
