Hiccupped and Happy


I danced last night naked in my backyard I
Had my shoes on
To keep a sense of
My blue glass of wine dark
I thank William
For his recipeee
"My Recipe
From that special area in North
Carolina where all the friends are
Family and all the families are not
Necessarily friends
And the names are
The same
I kept that wine too
Long, got it like vinegar
Before I tasted it
But as I danced in my backyard naked
The wine I kept for the right
Was now
In  a carafe of apples it
Took the vinegar to sweet
And the mosquitoes that feasted on my bare skin
Well... drove me inside
to write to you
hiccupped and happy.

I strongly recommend you wait

I strongly recommend you wait until Spring! Glad you liked it.  One of my customer always brings me a bottle of his homemade wine.
