Lusty ripe purple red
delish to the taste
ready for plucking
to be chewed or to
drink when crushed
oh so terrifuckly lush
but not enough to hold
ones interest for long
when the vine withers
so do the pluckers
and tasters who leave
to find newer fruit

This begins kind of flirty and ends with the sadness of lost love. Excellent write. I have been eating grapes like they're going out of style. They are soooo good after letting them stay in the freezer.

The metaphors induce a world of thoughts here eT. Grapes are also one of the cancer fighting foods I heard john Tesh speak about yesterday.
Your wine goes well with Jerry's quail this morning and here I am with jez cereal.

Suddenly I am both hungry and thirsty, in the most visceral way, for the taste of the fruit, the kiss of the sun, and the breeze in the grove. Thanks for this, it was delish!

The title draws you in,,,and the poem itself leaves a bittersweet taste in your mouth! How true, being of the much"plucked" class, I well know the meaning of this superb write! Thanks!
