Thankful Thursday: Terroir

vineyard sepia.jpg

In the vineyard

mahogany vines hang heavy 

against a wide blue sky

the day spreads a feast     just for us

say       yes     now

drink the mystery 

of cedar and soil

taste the dark gloss 

of plump summer fruit

know the terrain 

of this generous world

What are you thankful for today? What makes your world expand?

Note: Terroir - noun - ter·roir
The combination of factors, including soil, climate, and sunlight, that gives wine grapes [ and people ] their distinctive character.
