Wine

red ambrosia 
you fell on my plate


sweeping away
all lines of restraints  


turning the sun
into dark moon of dust


your ardour
wild pulse on my white palette  


swirling fruit 
dark plum, blackberries and spice 


exploding colors,
heady spell of purple and black  


on my tongue.
the wine tour guide was right 


you made dining 
heady and sensational delight.

I just came back from wine tasting tour along Niagara On the Lake, Canada.   Definitely worth going back.
