Like Fine Wine

Sweet on the palette
Medium to full length…
Length inevitably does matter
Some claim otherwise
Clarity, flawless on the eyes
I can see right through him
He has nothing to hide
Complex characteristics emerge
Thwarting my evaluation
Harder to read than what I thought
Never the less it keeps me eager
Willingly trailing his scent
Past first and secondary aromas
Allured with sensual plumes
Like breadcrumbs,
They draw me closer
Truly defining magnetism
Never loosing its girth
As you improve with age
Slowly revealing yourself
As you breathe easy
Stripping away the sediments of self consciousness
Leaving something decanted
At peace and sensitive

In January I got a phone call from an editor friend of mine asking me if some of my writing can go into an anthology of Australian writing, known locally as The friendly street poets.

I never expected my first ever attempt at submitting something would ever be chosen, I feel really lucky and grateful it has.

This is the poem that was selected, I studied wine the year I wrote this. Clearly… it’s very sentimental to me. I wrote it about how I admire my partner.

I’m living my biography at the moment, i’ll consider writing something when I feel that I truly have lived.
