The Poets' Wine

I open the bottle and sit here alone just trying to find words that rhyme. But the words seem to pass, so I pick up my glass and drink of the poets' wine. All my tomorrows and yesterdays blend as, today, I try to define. I see troubles and woes in yes's and no's when I drink of the poets' wine. Thens and theres, with whens and wheres are here in the fruit of the vine. And, often, it seems, I find a new dream when drinking the poets' wine. Sometimes things in the poets' wine bring feelings of pain and feelings divine. So, I sit here all night trying to write about what's in the poets' wine. A teardrop or two, with memories of you, insure that later I'll find a tear-stained page from some other age which was lost in the poets' wine. Yet, there's no destiny in the thoughts I set free with words I sometimes find. So, when it's all through, there's just me and you in the last of the poets' wine.

    Michael, I can't recall where the seed for this came from... could have been vodka tonics but' the wine took the blame. Thanks for the kudos.... Jake

    Peter, I appreciate the free hand of judgment extended. You'll really have to butcher something up for me to tread on such a hallowed path to greatness...Just know I will be looking.... but not very hard..... respectfully.... Jake

    Sarai, You have the right attitude for writing. If anyone can't stand criticism they shouldn't write and should take the comments as advice from those who seed to seek to help then improve their craft.... Thanks for the kind words and feel free to correct me in my blunders.... Love ya dearly.... Jake

    Yes, we poets will find inspiration from almost anything, yet when it comes down to it, we end up writing about love anyway. I believe that I have read this great poem before. But, it is one that is worth reading more than once! I love this poem! The flow of the words is just wonderful! Superb piece of poetry!
