Causerie with a neighbor

he started to grow
his own grapes
against the wall
of his house
facing south

the needed tollage
watering the foliage
on a daily base

his tiny winery
his dream of a lifetime
will succeed
in the north
of the Netherlands

without his wife
gone with the wind
he builds a new life

the first grapes
an intense strife
between sour and sweet

the grapevines
beautify his  new home
in that same house
without his former spouse

seasons come and go
each day
he steps to and fro
on his ladder 
with his little orange
flower  caster
caressing the leaves

every day
while on my way 
with my dog 
I'm passing by
we say hi
to each other

sometimes we chat
about the weather
while my dog 
and his white cat
snuggle side by side

one day 
the master
of his own tiny winery
one of his grapes
 and he told me
about the first bottled wine
he shared with his daughter
while I could see
the smile on his face

as always
I walk on
now blessed 
with the grace
of renewed happiness 
on a neighbor's face

(c) Elly Wouterse
