Simple bounty

Sun rises sleepily
The trees dusted in mist,
Glistening grass leaves shoes damp
Plucking the sweetness
This bounty of life.
Birds fill the ears
Cacophony of sound drowning out
The breeze that blows
Dancing berries
Touching tongue
Leaving a smile
In their wake.
The hounds nestle in
Watching the small striped snake
The brown and white string coiled back
Awaiting attack
And saved to slip away
Sliding along the crack in the sidewalk
Off to another place
This moment captured in my mind
This place of home,
And tomorrow soon new horizons await
Where an ocean calls to sun
We will leave behind
The wild fruit
For others to find
And may they be happily surprised
And feel the same
As I do this moment
This perfect day.

Being petrified of snakes I am learning to overcome my fears of encountering them and letting them do their thing…just don’t eat all my berries you little slithery things.

  1. The snakes here are harmless, when I move to Florida they have the killer variety….maybe you should,write a tale about venomous snakes😊 they already scare me to death😊🐍 thanks my friend and have a great word filled day😊 Kim

  4. I love these little wild strawberries, tiny sweetness and warm in the morning sun…except when the hounds steal them all on me…and they love to lay on my mint patch and roll all over the leaves….I,suppose it smells better than dirty muddy dog but does not fare well for my mojitos…sigh😊 thanks so much. I will miss this when we move.


Your words are stars and I humbly thank you for shining your light for me....
