Red Wine for Feb 14th

Here is my very own poetry prompt at the Wordsmith Studio site this week: click.

Don’t I love red wine? My father was a master wine-maker and vine-grower… Don’t I crave the memories of our vine-yard, that was home for so many happy days and nights of my childhood?

Warm wine

Warm wine

###

Red wine

to make me dizzy

stumbling over

my moments to share

where

I see the grains of black pepper

and hate them

for being black

for being round

for being spicy

 

(I prefer it ground)

 

Red wine

to make me remember

what I begged to forget

and stumble across

the headache I get.

    Might just have a glass or two myself a bit later… 🙂

    • Hey Stan, glad to have virtual company in wine-drinking 🙂 Good that virtual doesn’t involve real “crawling” back from the “Friday night mission” 😀
      Thanks for the visit!

    You brought back memories for me with this prompt. I even went online to the place I orignally had Glogg and purchased the spices. Like your poem and the prompt. Cheers!
