The fruit in the brambles
Juicy and sweet
Right by the edge
Some for the basket, some for a treat
But the best berries hang
In the back of the patch
‘neath the treacherous thorns
where only the birds and brave children can reach

for the dverse quadrille prompt of 7/27/20: brambles

  1. This is absolutely true … at least that was the case in mother’s blackberry patch behind the barn!

  2. So true! It is funny when I go raspberry picking that I pick what I see but when I turn back to return to pay for my berries I see tons more that I didn’t see the first time. Your writing made me think of all those hidden berries.
