The 2012 Wine Bloggers Conference, Brought To You In Linked Haiku! -or- #WBC12 #RidgeVineyards #Haiku

(What follows is a series of “Linked Haiku” — multiple spontaneously-composed Haiku on one  single subject. In this case, the Haiku are responses to the 2012 Wine Bloggers Conference; specifically, each Haiku is directly related to a specific agenda event at the conference)

A welcome with kind-

ness is kind; a welcome with

wine is sacrosanct!

-

Like brunch; a something

between somethings: between wine

and the writer: love.

-

Writing of wine, we don’t

write of self; rather, we write

of seeking no-self.

-

As with waterfalls,

flowing hospitality

is always holy.

-

Life of many friends,

week of many meetings, night

of many bottles.

-

Wine maker/writer;

we both prefer our glasses

be rosé-colored!

-

There are many kinds

of natural, but only

one kind of honest.

-

Do not stress the ease

of writing unless one is

sure that one writes well!

-

Love at first sight? Per-

haps, but a wine requires

more than five minutes!

-

Certainly we are

all winners. As are the win-

ners, only more so!

-

To truly dine like

a king, one must dine on the

estate of the king!

-

To write well is to

warm hearts. To write with passion;

this is to Ignite!

    Thank you: Life changing.

  3. What a great response to WBC12! Love the haikus!

    Having sat with you for two speed wine “dates” (in 2012 & 2010)–we both know that 5 minutes is plenty of time for some wines…and 5 hours isn’t enough for others…

  4. Beauty is in the
    Eye of the beholder, so
    Keep up the good work!

    • Thank you for the comment, and for the kind words!

    • p.s. I meant to praise you for your haiku! And, funny you should use the “beauty is in the eye of …” cooloquialism; I was actually really trying to work with that for one of the Haiku in my post, but couldn’t make it work; so, congratulations, and nicely done!

  5. Great poetry, man.
    I’m glad you have many more
    typewriters to spare.
