grapes for the best wine
fresh from the richest vineyard
blessed on the altar

grapes for the best wine

    I like when i read poems over and over.. it drives me crazy... and sometimes I like the feeling of crazy... LOL, however, reading haiku over and over is not the same. It helps understand the imagery a bit better. sis, i want these grapes, from the best wine. I'm not a drinker, but I will make an acceptation. you gave the haiku a nice jolly ending... always~ Linda
