I picked blackberries today.
The brambles
made me think about our wedding song
“the ripest fruit hangs
Where only two can reach”
One to hold the thorns back
One to pick the berries
But you dropped the canes
And left me
Like Sleeping Beauty

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