The Proposal

Photo of a vineyard at dawn vine laden with dark purple grapes.

Walking the vineyard
Early that morning
Wine fermented air
In the day dawning

A table waited
Laden with mounds
Of the deepest
Sweet rounds

There sparkled a diamond
Brighter than the dew
“My love,” you knelt smiling,
“I’ve a grape to pick with you.”

dVerse Poets Pub : Quadrille # 125 – In Praise of the Grape

Tonight at dVerse bar Linda serves us some wine to prompt our taste buds to verse the quadrille.

A Quadrille is a poem of exactly 44 words, not including the title. It must include the prompt word wine. Muse was in a silly mood.

  1. I bet walking an early morning orchard has the best fragrance ever. I love “mounds of the deepest sweet rounds” as the perfect place for that sparkling diamond, but I’m not sure if it is a stone or the holder of the stone who is the precious gem. Lovely poem, Raivenne.

So? What do you think?
