The Wine's Talking
by Jeannie E. Roberts

       ‐inspired by Pierre-Auguste Renoir's painting, "Luncheon of the Boating Party" (1881)

Wearing our finest

engaging notes
enliven taste buds‐

plum's sweetness

when humus rises,
fades with fennel,

pine follows
where thyme drifts

between flavors
of mocha and smoke.

It's a tasteful occasion
as they sip, savor us

and the moment.
Our profiles glow,

our bottles flow readily
with refills.

It's just another afternoon

at the Maison Fournaise.
