Summer Wine. - Poem by Marie Shine

In the warm sunshine
Eyes wide closed
I go to you...
Slipping into your arms
I melt
in the heat of our love
two become one
In my mind
I am with you...

Breeze gently blows
Fanning the flames
my desire for you
as it kisses
my face
Here in body
My heart, mind and soul
with you, my love
In my mind
I am with you...

    I wrote a very different poem titled, : Winter Wine, but I’ll take your SUMMER wine anytime! This is such a beautiful, tasteful, sensual, poem about human desire and love. Very romantic and fun. I like how again you use the wind to bring as a force of love (similar to another poem where the wind kissed the subject of the poem) . The elements, the human their spirit, all fuse together for the most pure form of love possible on earth. Beautiful. Give me some of the wine…please!  (Report) Reply

    This strikes me as a pure poem. There are none of the complications and subplots and descriptions that make up a narrative poem. Just the lyrical moment, a song sung just because this scene overflows with joy and where can joy go except into loving arms and shared hours. This is the kind of wine that doesn't befuddle the brain or confuse the mind. It's not intoxicating in that sense. It's like the wine in Sufi poems, a symbol of the finer grace of being. We drink it to refresh the spirit, not to dull it, to open the heart, not to numb the body.. (Report) Reply
