I was want to worship the raspberry for most of my days
The ripened berry plucked and placed on tongue to note
Savoring the warm tart stimulus of juice upon the throat
The cane has rent my flesh of hand and arm while I have
Picked or pruned towards winter’s rest.
Today the sun has broken through the morning damp of fog
And greeting my eye at every turn is the passionate red of
Blueberry’s wave goodbye; I am startled to see one last offering
Remaining, and I bow down to adore its subtle notion and
Feel truly blessed.
Hedged outline of three rows mark the walk on three sides
Bluff allows only the eye to further scope – the other.
I feel the crisp cold air come round and shiver retreating to feel
The sun come down and warm me still as quiet prayer
Fingers pick and taste forms – a communion.

This moment of beauty just touched my very being today. Has autumn beauty touched you deeply too?
