Berry Picking


From the berry patch comes the sound of a late summer afternoon. Giggles and a bit of a song...Soon I will be wiping stained fingers and chins, purple mouths proudly held up to be admired.. Buckets half full, but probably enough for a small pie..Breathing deeply of this small pleasure of living, I promise myself I will try to remember these moments in the cold of a deep winter morning, when the children are grown and berry picking a part of another time.
