A-Z Challenge: R

For more A-Z click on image

R is for Raspberry











Little hut of circles,
a nest 
for the tongue
a thimble of juice
as a summer morning.
Ripe on the brier,
a red promise

Summer igloo
in the hot iron sun.
Pebble of seed
gathered under flesh,
soft thatch of roof

Elusive melody
in the thorn bush,
a chorus repeated
year after year,
a sotto voce note
that hangs
in August's mouth.
