I ONCE ENJOYED A WINE SOME 19 VINTAGES PAST
    I once knew this woman about 19 years ago
 
WHOSE BRANDED VERSE DID SPIN VIVACITY WHOLE
WHOSE NOBLE BOUQUET IN PROXIMITY WROUGHT
SUCH RAPTURED SIGNIFICANCE…
PARADISE PERCEIVED
    Who turned my whole life around with a poem.
    Who smelled so good that just being next to her
    and breathing her in...
    Felt like touching heaven
 
WHOSE IRIDESCENT UNCORKED RIM ALLUDED TO PROMISES DIVINE… FROM HENCE, SINCE PRESSED, DID FLOW
THE POMEGRANATES LIQUESCENT ESSENCE…
EVER READY TO BREATHE NEW LIFE
INTO HEART MIND SOUL AND STRENGTH
    Whose present smiles were like rainbows
    and whose absent tears were like
    living streams of water for the rose I held so dear
 
INDEED, IN THIS VERY HAND EDENS BOUNTY WAS HELD… EMBOLDENING SPIRIT…
♫ WATER NOW BECOME WINE ♫…
THIS COMPOSITION, ONCE TASTED,
FLUSHED MY SENSES WITH ITS SWEET SYMPHONY…
ADRIFT NIRVANAS FRAGRANT SEA PEERED I ECTASYS GATE…
WHICH MARKED HEAVEN ON EARTH…
BEFORE ME THIS PURE UNSPOILED PARADISE LAYED BARE
♫ A LAND FLOWING WITH MILK AND HONEY ♫
    With her hand in mine she empowered my soul…
    Her skin to my touch like music…
    How I lost myself in its refrain…
    Even her face, touched by GOD,
    spoke to me of life and love eternal
 
I WOULD HAVE PAID ANY COST TO NURSE MINE PANTED LIPS UPON
THE RUBY DROPS OF THIS MOST SOVEREIGN OFFERING
    I would have done anything for that woman

Forgive the shouting...

The scene is a tavern where a man is telling a tale (rather flamboyantly) about the finest wine he ever enjoyed to the rest of the patrons. Unbeknownst to the rest of the patrons in the tavern he is really talking about a woman. His thoughts and the second story are in italics.

Hope you enjoy!

Thanks Amber M. Royse...I loved all your poems especially "A Sweet Caress"
