Into the Bramble

wild blackberries

plump & ripe

grow in a bramble

of their own vines

make picking slow

& deliberate

sometimes bloody

when arms are uncovered

yet we pick

knowing their sweetness

in a pie— jam— cobbler or wine

so into the bramble we go

  1. Very beautifully penned. Risk and reward themes here and I like that! Aren’t things a bit more engaging when there’s a bit of a hurdle between what we want and then trying to get what we want? Excellent take on the prompt.
