red red wine
intimate entry,
tones of burgundy,
plum color clarity in
black and white, glass
filled out with graceful lines,
still-evolving crystal to stages
in your life, epicurean,


small space
to refine your priorities,
milestones twine around
grapevines, sip your wine,
cellar and interior designer,
you call upon me, asking for
my artistic insight,


walk with me
to the pantry to
accessorize, and...
those drapery tiebacks,
I want to feel you inside me
like a warm cottage every day,


easel coming
back from an errand,
red red wine, old suitcases
filled with canvas and brushes
stored beneath the pine table, they 
now need opened for understanding,
thirsty for this kind of communication,
red red wine...vintage drops salvaged,

the artist's
largest work
in progress, inspired
artist-in-residence preserved
and drawn to her shape, the vigorous
spirit of woman and the era she lives...
thank you Neil Diamond.

love the photo as well as the write-and, of course, Neil Diamond!
Reviewed by Regis Auffray 1/8/2010
Photo and verses complement one another most effectively, Sage. I like Neil Diamond very much; particularly "Solitary Man." Do you mean "burgundy" in the third verse? Lovely poem. Love and best wishes to you,

Reviewed by Felix Perry 1/7/2010
I read this twice and savored the simplicity but yet intensity of each verse. The picture grabbed me with it's feminine symbology and you continued to hold my interest till the very end. Well done.
Reviewed by Karen Palumbo 1/7/2010
Such command of the language to so delicatley paint a well rounded portrait leaving it for others to savor....

Be always safe,
Reviewed by Jerry Bolton (Reader) 1/7/2010
Ah, give it the smell test first
Fondle it and purse your lips
Close your eyes, enjoy the bouquet
Tenderly touch it with your tongue
Swirl it around and around some more
Immerse your mouth around its rim
Suckle until at peace with God . . .
Reviewed by Karen Lynn Vidra, The Texas Tornado 1/7/2010
Striking in image and verse, Sage; very nice! Well done!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D

So beautiful, Sage - well done.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
Reviewed by Victoria's Poetry & Voices of Muse 1/7/2010
Your pure love of woman
is so evident & pronounced
through tender arms reaching
carressing poetic expression
every line delicate
an utterly beautiful offering
sensitive & unfolding chapters of you...
Love & RRW
