Tasting Grapes

By
Tasting Grapes

Plucking orbs off twisting vines is a sure way to satisfy
Your fingers delicately hold the soft marble
Scrutinize the glossy finish and deep wine color
Anticipating the desirable juice upon your tongue

Your fingers delicately hold the soft marble
Moving towards your open lips which are
Anticipating the desirable juice upon your tongue
Aromas of nature’s fruit pleasantly stings your nostrils

Moving towards your open lips which are
Usually soft but rough compared to the case
Aromas of nature’s fruit pleasantly stings your nostrils
As you reach towards the green and purple jungle

Usually soft but rough compared to the case
Are the leaves of the vines that bear such wonderful fruit
As you reach towards the green and purple jungle
Your stomach begs you for another pleasant treat

Are the leaves of the vines that bear such wonderful fruit
Strong to hold the globes that you desire?
Your stomach begs you for another pleasant treat
Give yourself nature’s seasonal gift of photosynthesis

Strong to hold the globes in which you desire
Are the hands that are reaching
Give to yourself nature’s seasonal gift of photosynthesis
Your smile is sure to be as bright as the aiding sun

Are the hands that are reaching
Secretly hoping for more than you need?
Your smile is sure to be as bright as the aiding sun
When you crush the skin and the sweet insides dance in your mouth

Secretly hoping for more than you need
Your fingers reach forward to benefit again
When you crush the skin and the sweet insides dance in your mouth
Such satisfaction from such a simple thing

Your fingers reach forward to benefit again
You leave the vineyard with a full wicker basket
Such satisfaction from such a simple thing
Now you can share your pick

You leave the vineyard with a full wicker basket
For the third time this month
Now you can share your pick
With all of those who are awaiting the grapes
