Okanagan Offering

Painter: Ute Hilligweg
Poet: Wayne Power

Row beside row the Varietals grow red, purple, green present the scene
Lakeside slopes of ripening hopes
Pinot noirs and chardonnays blue sky days and sunshine rays
Okanagan sun
caressing lines of parallel vines prepare for wines
Pressing, squeeze
the juices release fermenting yeast robust of body to increase
Wine corked and aged in caskets caged ripen in cellars staged
The nectar poured in stemware stored a vintage flavour
praise and savour
