Inspired by a friend and fellow poet, '''Cory Garcia''', and his love of passionate poetry.

'0 - < - * - > o:) O (: o < - * - > - 0'
Fantasies rise of my one truest love
 Running as red as his dark, distilled blood.
Vibrantly intimate; stealthily full...
 A pure heart not knowing inflections of cruel.
Aroused and enraptured by rebel appeal;
 My hunger for him is of something unreal.
His smoky aroma defines deep inspiration...
 His brisk, rustic tang tempts true intoxication.
Thick visions of skin flood my tongue with wet splashes
 I dream of his deeply rich texture in flashes...
Oh, how I long for his warming embrace;
 For it is he I could never replace!
My soul commits stark to rejoice in his birth
The proof, now a poem; thus, will never lose worth.
His blessing, a gift, that grows sweeter with time.
For, my one love truest is the finest of red wine....

Cory had inspired the creation of this piece by presenting me with a poetic challenge in which I accepted probably way too quickly and with far too much enthusiam considering I previously knew nothing at all of the subject matter that was the basis of his challenge... His challenge - "WRITE A PASSIONATE LOVE POEM WITH THE OBJECT OF YOUR OBSESSION BEING '''PINOTAGE'''." I didn't have even the slightest inkling as to what a "pinotage," was, but I jumped at the chance for a challenge despite my ignorance... For those who are still wondering, pinotage is a brand of red grape native to South Africa used for winemaking. I can only guess that it was Cory's own profound love of wine (red wine) that provoked this particular challenge.

Well Cory... I gotta tell ya, it was extremely difficult and a total blast; effortlessly owning up to its title as a true "CHALLENGE!!!" Thanks so much for devising such an exercising poetic workout and for sharing in this experience with me... I hope I didn't disappoint, but most of all, I hope you love it! 8^)

Honestly, yours might be the single most beautiful and poetic reaction to my craft of passion (other than my own hehe) that i've ever recieved thus far... I extend my deepest gratitude and take a bow; as I'm truly honored to have been challenged by such a distinguished poet; a voice as loud as it is unique and a mind for poetry fully romantic and free. The way you feel for this write is truly the ultimate reward any writer might seek from an audience.So... You feelin' froggy? I just might have a task for you, if you're up for it... 8^o
