    Poem from Here - blackberry


    a lush & safely hidden resting place
    within a labyrinth of thorny canes -
    quail & rabbits run the arching lanes
    beneath the flood of blossoms that embrace
    the morning sun. the leaves transform its heat
    into the fuel of berries that will feed
    the birds & mammals & their autumn greed,
    those golden days when fruits hang dark & sweet.
    the blackberry is generous & sly.
    a merry laughter ripples through her leaves.
    with thorns she teaches to accept the pain
    that comes with sweetness as with love, then by
    the tangle of her roots & brambles weaves
    the happy power of communal gain.

    from Corona Flora by Sandy Eastoak
