Antiqua Mura

Over the cracked and ancient wall
where laden leafy grapevines fall,
a coy breeze artfully reveals
what nature’s wise design conceals:
it bares to sun the jeweled stain
of blue grapes washed with last night’s rain
amid a sea of biblical leaves
fit for contemporary Eves.

Classic image, bargain price:
Brooklyn’s backyard paradise.
