haiku

blackberries
fresh from the bush -
juice on chins.


Juicy for One Deep Breath

Now I am imagining a child eating the berriesdirectly from the bush, getting all smeared and smiling a partially toothless impish smile.

Krissie said...

I dont know how to do that link thing either, never works for me!
I like yours, reminds me of childhood days picking blackberries in the woods.

Jo said...

It's the best way to eat them, nicely done! (BTW if you email me at johemmant@gmail.com, I will send you the foolproof link stuff (you just need to copy and paste different text in each week). Between Roswila and Tumblewords, I eventually figured it out.)

spacedlaw - :)!

krissie - thanks!

jo - thanks - I may email you, though i know I have the foolproof code somewhere on my computer at home. I'm at work just now and don't have it here. (What? haiku at work??!!)

Brian said...

It's early for lunch. Alas, must work as well.

Liza Lee Miller said...

Nice! Thank you!

tumblewords said...

A lovely, vivid and tasty image.

polona said...

yum, delightful :)

Roswila said...

Wonderful image! Brings back memories...

Ron said...

Berries and juicy chins; our common human heritage, great.
If I understood the instruction correctly we could simply type the whole haiku in the comments with or without a permalink. No?

Crafty Green Poet said...

brian, liza, tumblewords, polona, roswila - thanks

ron - yes indeed, but by adding a permalink you encourage people to visit your blog!

I enjoyed one juicy, perfectly formed blackberry this summer. Thinking about it makes my mouth water. Hope the bush produces many more next year.

Quietpaths said...

mmmm, this made me hungry. Great 'ku. Blackberries - my favorite.

ann said...

I get mine from Tesco or
Sainsburys or Waitrose, but
they were fresh from the
bush at some point... pass
the cream ;>)

Are they just now coming in there? Our blackberry harvest is at the beginning of July here on Planet Georgia. I got about a gallon & a half from the various stands on the grounds, and we have plenty of jelly & jam for the winter...

Rae Trigg said...

Mmmm. Sun-warmed berries right off the bush. Lovely image.

Crafty Green Poet said...

Farfetched - no this one isn't as seasonal as I usually try to make them. But it was what came to mind!

Bill - nice ku thanks!

Sandy, quietpaths, ann, rae - thanks!

Hi Crafty! Really nice haiku. I love the image of picking and eating juicy blackberries, with the juice dripping. That is such a wonderful summer memory!

oh I love this and I love blackberries...there's a patch right out my back door that supplies us with lots and this year they are plump and ever so juicy.

YUM!

Patois said...

I love the blackberries and the thought of them just dribbling down the chins. Nice!
