raspberries in winter

leave a comment »

On December 11, 2016 (from 10 AM to 4 PM), I will be at the Delta Hotel (Fredericton, New Brunswick) at Sandra’s Christmas Market Fredericton to sell my paintings and books. If you are in the Fredericton area, please pay me a visit!


I have a new painting for sale at the event. December 8, 2016  ‘raspberries’ is painted in acrylics, 7″ x 5″, gallery edges, unframed. It reminds me of picking raspberries on a summer day.



December 8, 2016 ‘raspberries’ Jane Tims (acrylic) 7″ x 5″ $25



mended by raspberries

for Mary


drove all the way to Flume Ridge

to pick those berries, large as thimbles


red as blood after we’d pricked

our fingers on needled vines


crossed the covered bridge to nowhere

the through road blocked, the way broken


the covered bridge at our backs

the roar of the flume in our ears


the tipple of honey bees

lightheaded in the berry canes



This poem appears in my book, within easy reach, Chapel Street Editions, 2016.
