Vintages

Brown sunlight creeps through slats around
edges and tans her naked shoulder.
The smudged stemware on last night's table
observes his restlessness. Away,
where summer lingers, clusters droop
and await, patiently, the harvest.
He reaches for a glass. She lets him.

I love that you are writing more.    It is so easy to get out of routine.   And I know are such a perfectionist you only want to post a polished finished piece, with the exception of posting in the workshop.    You can post less perfect stuff you know.   Just write.

Very much enjoyed this Tony, particularly the acquiescence in the concluding line.

Thanks, Phil. I like that, too. I think there are some layers just in that line: he reaches for the glass, not for her; he reaches for the glass and for her; etc.

Same appreciation as Tinker once I figured out what stemware is :-)

Thanks, Joel. I figured I'd get specific. Didn't want to use glass/glasses twice in a short poem.
