WINE ON THE VINE
That discovery can un-wine’d one’s mind — if not careful Bev... :) ...love those other uses of thr glorious grape.
It sounds like such a lovely place and memory. I love grape arbors.
I love the delicious sounds in these lines, especially: "sun ripened plumppurple clusters hungready for plucking"
I love 'wine on the vine' Beverly!
"wine on the vine" yes! Jelly is good too though :)
Amazing what we learn as we age! Love you poem and you wine on the vine!
I enjoyed the visuals used in this piece. I can see the plump grapes ready for plucking.
"wine on the vine" I loved that!
How wonderful to have your own grapevine, Bev. I too spent my childhood oblivious to them being ‘wine on the vine’. I thought grapes were what you got when you were in hospital!
Much better as fresh grapes! Everybody used to have a grapevine somewhere...called their grapes by breed names, scuppernong, muscadine. My parents chose Concord and in Virginia they don't do too well.
It's nice that your years of innocence where not tainted by the bitter taste of wine, or alcoholism!
We had a Concord vine on our garage. I remember eating the succulent ripe fruit and spitting out skins and seeds. Thanks, Bev!
Delightful ~~ the “P” words rock. Cheers to you!
Oh, the age of innocence!! Love this quadrille!
I could picture those "sparkling jars of grape jelly". I'm a bit of jam maker, but haven't tried jelly.....yet. :)
Smiling I am. Love this...."wine on the vine"....ah the innocence of childhood but gosh...so yummy to eat too! :)
