An awesome example of a choka, a Japanese ‘long poem’

Dancing Echoes


Nature’s bright stained glass
Gnarled old vines twist and turn
In arthritic pose
Still produce bountiful yield
Deep ruby nectar
Warming blood and libido
Glorious bouquet
Jammy dark fruit, chocolate
Leathery finish
Heady inebriation
Dionysus smiles
With religious ecstasy
Theatre played in grape and vine


Waning golden light
Cool Pacific breezes swirl
Calm post frenzied crush
When Brix was running peak
In all its sublime sweetness
