Contemplation~by Paul Lenzi





“Grape Arbor at Neukastel” by Max Slevogt

summer grapes
sweet and firm
with the wealth
ripe of season

days folded
in birdsong and
suncast notions
of dignity

living arbors lend
afternoon shade
self-reflection in
winetasting chairs

fine al fresco
experience dear
to esthetic

minding valleys
whose slopes
bear wan ghosts
of good men

moral vintages
grown from the
garden of seeds
before sin

From my book Pieces of Wine
