The Wine Series a Collection of Haiku

The Grapevine

Gnarly arms of wood
reaching to catch the sun’s warmth
for fruity rapture.

 

The Grape

Sun-baked delight in
nature’s own small container,
ready for the press.

 

Old Cellar

Row upon row the
barrels lie shielding their still
unborn wet secret.
 

The Vintner

Storing his cherished
secrets in a cold, dark cellar
to fatten his purse.

 

The Wine

Fermented moisture,
aged to bring out old magic
again and again.
 

The Drinker

Removing the cork
is his ritual start of
flavoursome journeys.
