“I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over.
Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center.” ― Kurt Vonnegut

Taste and devour

Lips seductively tease
an eager tongue
slow with ease

Bringing me pleasure
drinking you in
devouring your measure

Strong and bold
keeping me warm
from the cold

Like fine grape
ripe and juicy
aching to escape

Most beautiful sight
with fruitful nectar
throughout the night

My loving savior
taking me over
with fragrant flavour

You and me
blushing with colour
passionate and free

With fancy flight
feeling wildly unhibited
giddy and light

You’re fine Australian
with lovely French
German and Italian

You taste sweet
succulent and spicey
most delightful meet

You’re simply devine
sinful and delicious
my bottled wine

One of my passions in life is a fine wine. I’ve been to several tastings and have done my own research on wine. I’ve tasted many lovely wines imported from around the globe over the years…a beautiful thing indeed.

Wine is the fermented juice of the grape or some other fruit. A lovely and popular alcoholic drink. Poets have sung the praises of wine. Homer, Pliny and Shakespeare wrote of the friendliness of wine.

Omar Khayyan painted an immortal picture of contentment with his verse in the Rubaiyat, “A Jug of Wine, a Loaf of Bread-and though”. The Greek God Dionysus (called Bacchus by the Romans) was the God of wine and looked on as the God of good living, lawgiver and promoter of civilization.

Wine has come down from the ages as part of religious celebrations such as the Roman Catholic Mass, Jewish Ceremonies and some Protestant Services. Many countries around the world produce various wines. Among them are Argentina, France, Italy, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Australia, Africa and the United States. California produces approximately 85 percent of the wine in the United States.
