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...

    SUMMER WINE is the perfect title of this poem, because of the resonance of harvest and fulfillment it conveys. It situates the action of the poem within this ideal context. It emphasizes this is an experience without shadows
    darkening the edges. The speaker of the poem is naked in the original meaning of that word, which is unprotected. Her confidence is so great, she has surrendered everything to her beloved. There is something sacred in such love. We are blessed to witness it and can only hope the experience is more than poetic vision. (Report) Reply
