he loves blackberries and blood oranges
has visions of bottles of sweet liquors
fashioned of those delectable delights
their sweet aroma
perfuming the air while our fingers
are stained with their colors
some moments I spy him
sneaking a berry
grinning like a Cheshire Cat
and it makes me love them too.
Adele at The Music In It incited us to write about fruits this week, and I couldn’t help but use my husband’s love for some of his favorites as inspiration.
