    The blackberries mention is a little cryptic. Are they the RIM variety? ;-)

    Sweet! Lovely words, lovely image, lovely thought. I hope this makes it to the eventual anthology of great (and delicious) blackberry poems….gracias Alexa.

    Simple, in the best sense, and truthful. Compelling as the experience it describes.

    I like your blackberry story. Here is mine about the end of summer:

    Wizened yellow apples
    along the side of the road.
