You show a deeply personal connection to the divine in this poem. Lovely verse.
That is very beautiful. The lover's irresistable smile overcomes resolve, perhaps? A gorgeous small poem.
nice! very simple at first but not at all simplistic...still sweet
Thank you.I hope you'll all read Khayyam after this, he was a mathematician, philosopher and astronomer and wine lover as well as a lover of beautiful people and things (my kind of men)His quatrains are fabubulous!!!
that is of course if you had not read it yet.
Love the rhyme for your beloved!
It works so well for me...locked in the atticKill word Verification
Is that a tiny tribute to Bishop, there? I like how this can play so strongly and in perfect contrast depending on what the wine is.
It was my understanding that the hidden meaning of ’wine’, "drunk" plays an important role in the interpretation of Khayyam as a Sufi poet,and his poems go beyond an expression of random thoughts. The thoughts of a philosopher about the ruby red liquid he fell addicted to, at an old age…And yes, I just finished reading Geography III and how could one not be influenced by it… especially the Art of Losing (such a perfectly polished poem).
Paul,Before I forget again to actually post the answer to your comment:Yes, the beloved's smile is like the wine: it gets you drunk. Irresistible...
