October 21, 2016 ‘blueberries’, Jane Tims

~

pick faster

for Dad

~

blue ripens as morning, deft fingers

noisy pails, hail on metal gutters

this bush spent, unsatisfactory

berries over there fatter

bluer

~

I am certain I see, beside mine

my father’s hands, callused

and quick

~

berries roll between

thumb and fingers

I try to meet

his expectation

pick faster
