Morning's Vineyard


As I walk between the heathers
Down through the moistened mounds
There arise, though slow and softly,
Dawn's distant morning sounds

The serenade of sun~birth
Whispers low and o'er the sea
And in the vineyards yonder
Doth my love await for me

He said to come at daybreak
And now day is breaking free
As I gather up my skirts and hasten,
Through the lavender fields I flee

With the thrum of intonation
The larks and thrushes stir
And murmur as my footfalls
'Pon the meadow's floor infer

That my love is nigh and waiting
In the vineyard just beyond
Where the hedgerows part the grasses  
Past the drowsy olive pond  

And I wonder if they've seen him
Strolling 'neath the emerald hues
Through the vines of morning's vineyard
To await his love's enthuse

Breathing in the earth's aroma
I sweep swiftly to the place
Cast my eyes about the vineyard
But see not my love's fine face

Nor hear sounds of any running
Nothing moves, my sight implies
As I listen, still, in silence
Something old within me cries

And as I wake in dreamlight's dawning
Soft, in sheets of heirloom lace
Visions fresh, of morning's vineyards
Pour vintage tears upon my face



Dear LadyClaire

My God, woman !
This is gorgeous !

Soft, in sheets of heirloom lace

Pour vintage tears upon my face'

I must say this - you are so cool.  Your poetry blows me away at times.  This one surely did.  Such vivid imagery all through this piece...it floated, then crashed to tears at the end.  Beautiful work, Claire.  I stand in awe.

In early morning hours I cast my eyes on this
and felt that such enchanting poem should have end in bliss
But knowing also that love is not always free
I think the ending suits the poem done by thee
A tear went down my pillow as watch and read
This truly is a poem to make my heart weep
Your words are written so soft with such loving tenderness
May god always protect thee and forever bless
Your truly are a poet of great divine
May the sun above there always, on thee shine
((((you))))

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

Can your poetry get any more beautiful? I don't think so until I read another. You take my breath away, Claire, with your wonderful talents. You are a pure joy to the world of poetry. Congratulations on this fine piece.

Thanks Marge...your reply caught me off guard and gave me a giggle.  

Rex..."Weep not, for thy heart is purity and sadness serves only to soil it."  Didn't someone once say that, or did I make it up?!  Anyway, thank you, Rex, for your sweet response.

Michael...it takes one to know one, dearie. Thank you for your gracious review. It's wonderful to be able to share in poetry this way, and your work gives me such pleasure.

James...thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed this one.  

Helmut...again your tender words humble me. Thank you.

(((you)))

Mike...a gift is to share, as you share yours with all of us every day.  Thank you for your words, and for the sharing.

Melissa...thank you! And I look forward to reading your work as well. Lovely name you have  

Dear Liz...your response is always so encouraging. Knowing that you enjoyed this makes me smile.

Hoot Owl...thank you, Ruth, as I know to expect grandness from your work as well.  

Yes, Parker, I do...I wrote this last night when I "should" have been dreaming!   Thanks for reading.

This captured me in a time before,
where romance breathes and the sky crys and dreams are where the heart lives.  Very beautiful poetry in you Claire.

Claire, this poem is simply amazing and perfect. It gives me major poety envy girlfriend(smile)...you write as graceful as a butterfly...
I love your fairy symbol...beautiful like this poem and your heart!
janet marie

 Now for me some words come easy
But I know that they don't mean that much
Compared with the things that are said when lovers touch
You never knew what I loved in you
I don't know what you loved in me
Maybe the picture of somebody you were hoping I might be...

What else can I say? You made this so vivid I could see you just as you described your self walking expectantly through the heather. Beautiful, Claire.

The pictures you paint with your words are beyond words of mine.  I am breathless due to the beautiful, charming imagery in this poem.  I cannot think of anything that is wonderful enough to describe this feeling i have after reading, no breathing, this poem.

Oh Meadowmuse....I envy your talent so much. You write with the grace and stunning beauty that I can only hope that I one day possess. This was absolutely gorgeous, as always.  You continue to be one of my favorite poets.

Balladeer...If my poem allows you to envision the scene, then I must consider it a success. Thank you, in earnest, for sharing your impressions with me.

sonjes...thank you for that "breathtaking" review...I'm happy to know you enjoyed the feelings brought about by the reading.

Alwye...what a sweet thing to say about...thank you!

Marge...thank you for your kindness ... I think folks must have had enough of the vineyard though..lol.

welp, looks like I'm a little late to reply to this one, after everyone said the things I wanted to say. Just know that I loved it as much as everyone else.

Claire,
This poem reminded me of Emily Dickinson: heartfelt, beautiful, transcendental and rhythmic. The only thing that keeps it from fully being Dickinsonian is a lack of too many dashes! Believe me, I can definitely live with that. Great job.

Mike
