The blueberries are ripening
mmm..their flavor tickle my tongue
Alas! when it was time to harvest
the ripe berries were gone!
Oh what a disappointment!
who could have pilfered them?
Was it a nosy neighbor
or some exuberant children?
The mystery had to be solved
I laid in wait in the grass
and watched and waited and waited and watched
until something happened at last –
A flame breasted creature
hippity-hopped on the ground
closer and closer it got to the bushes
as its beady eyes looked around.
I guess it did not see me
soon it flew to the berry branch
it buried itself among the leaves
and guiltless pecked at its lunch.
So it was one ravenous robin
who denied me my blueberry pie!
I aimed at him and took a shot
that I will have proof of his crime.
Blueberries, bushes, and birds, I think, are good for FRIZZTEXT’s BBB challenge, no? 🙂
Meanwhile, over at dVERSE POETS’ PUB, Bjorn wants us to think about our favorite words and maybe, write a poem about them. I guess, blueberry is right up there in my favorites list. 🙂
Thanks for coming by. Check out the above links for good ol’ fun. 🙂
Oh, just a little aside. The heat wave broke. Yey! We are down to high 70’s with rains in the forecast.
We enrolled our three older boys in Tae Kwon Do and we’ve been busy shuttling them to their classes. I have now a deeper appreciation of mothers and fathers who devotedly drive their children to their various activities. Kudos to all of you. 🙂
