Poem… Love’s Divine Wine

Love’s Divine Wine

(translation|modification of Amor Vino Divino)

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

Like the sun:
The most beautiful
The brightest star
The most stunning
…whose love brings joy.

With my affections,
I seek the divine in her.
Her love’s vine
is sweet and strong like fire.
Intoxication is my desire
with her love’s divine wine.

Our love is real:
Everlasting fortress
Stronger than the fondness of the womb
that gave her life.

Destiny united us,
if such a thing exists
or maybe it was the gods…

I give thanks for the blessing:
Two temples and their pulpits
of love’s divine wine.
