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.

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.
