To the light,
A green glass bottle,
Beautiful in its simplicity
The color dark, yet opaque,
Just enough to let light through.
When viewed from the right angle,
It lets through far more than just light.
Memories of a familial heritage, fading.
Reminders of other experiences, gone.
A portal to an age past, and innocence
No longer present, but held ever close.
A sparkling tradition that refreshes me,
Washes over mind more than tongue.
Il dolce far niente is what I aspire to,
Taking time for my mind to unwind
And my heart to realign its course.
The simplest way to connect
To my Mediterranean roots.
