Huckleberry Poem

One of our readers submitted the following poem, written by his mom,  Laurel Moss from Mendocino, California:

Huckleberry Poem Lady

Bounty

“Huckleberries, hunkering under leaves

Fumbling fingers combing branches

Berries bouncing, ting-ing into tin bowls

The air clear

The aroma a bit musky

Little movement or sound

But of the crackling of branches underfoot

The revelation in shadow of beaded clusters

Black and blue berries

Sweet, sour, shiny

And spider webbed

in this late October day

The taste of autumn in the air.”
