Fill the Glasses Once Again

1-red-wine-spill-dennis-james

fill the glasses once again
more wine
more wine
a deeper darker vintage
from a deeper darker vine
the scent rises heady and intoxicating
curling like a dragons tail
under your nose
like old velvet with the scents of earth and berry
and more
deeply drink and let the midnight harvest surround and take you
springs of clear cold water
will never serve to quench this thirst
fill the glasses once again

About chimerapoet

I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. Not.....me. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?
