“The juice of the muscadine is the liquid quintessence of concentrated sunbeams.” ― Thomas Love Peacock

A bitten ripe muscadine explodes in my mouth like wine dynamite.

Wild Summer Love


Blackberry canes bloom.

Delicate white blossoms dance

On dangerous canes.


Teasing, tempting me.

Tantalizing  memories

Of exotic wine.


Tart sweet dark juices

Explode in my mouth.  Summer

Loves cannot compare.


Pluck with care.  Eat with

Passion.  Berry rush quickens

My pulse, sates my senses.
