Vineyard, Temecula Valley Wine Country, Southern California

So full are the vines,
ten thousand workers cannot
gather the harvest.

  1. wonderful photograph and inspiration.

  2. Nor will ten thousand poets run out of inspiration! Those grapes are gorgeous!

  3. inspiration
    could it be magical
    or mystical


    • magicalmysticalteacher

      No, all the inspiration you need is hanging on the vine—nothing mystical or magical about that!

  4. Look for A Lovely Thing

    beautiful! I love the use of ten thousand. It’s very Ray Bradbury-esque.

      It is? In what context? I don’t remember…

      • Look for A Lovely Thing

        Bradbury wrote very poetically. It’s one of the main reasons I am attracted to his work. So often he goes into beautiful, image rich descriptions. He also uses the phrase ten thousand to describe, basically, an uncountable number. It’s almost a writing tic for him. I dunno, I just love that about him. And this poem reminded me that I could use a little Bradbury short story reading tonight. So thank you. XXOO

  5. Very nice. I read the haiku before seeing the photo and thought instantly of bees–sometimes it seems they need so many to get all the nectar.

  6. Amazing photo…love the feeling relayed in your haiku of something so vast and wonderful! (Me doing my late night/early am homework.)

  7. The fruits of the vine have inspired great thoughts for milelnia and you continue the tradition 🙂


  8. Indeed! there is something so promising in seeing bunches and bunches of unripe grapes getting fatter and fatter on the vine.

  9. Lovely haiku about abundance of nature ~ great photo ~ Happy Week to you and thanks for the comments ^_^

  10. much to be appreciated in the vineyard!

  11. I love this, it sounds almost biblical to me x

  12. As long as they are not grapes of wrath 🙂

  13. I like the imagery here. It speaks of abundance, no dearth of inspiration!


  14. so of course, we must make wine!
