RIPE AND READY TO BATHE IN GIN

A chill of Autumn in the air and spider’s webs are everywhere these delicate exquisite works of art such beauty and joy fill my heart Old Man’s beard has just appeared weaving its way through blackberry bushes loved that name when I was small to touch ~ so furry to see ~ enthralled Blackberries plump and succulent awaiting to be picked evoking memories of Mum’s fruit crumbles blackberries and apples mixed Sloes ~ a rich dark purple fruit ripe and ready to bathe in Gin patiently waiting as sloes luxuriating tempted to taste but must not haste to sip a *Sloe Gin on a cold winters night leaves a feeling of warmth and contentment
*kind warning to all who partake one should try to show some restraint after just one or two it may be too late to binge you'll end up prostrate… last stanza written 'tongue in cheek'
