 One of the activities that I enjoy in Upper Michigan is picking wild berries. I have expressed my enjoyment of thimbleberries in this poem.


                                                         August Treasure


Ripe in August

Along creek beds,

Rambling into forest


Bright red jewels

Peeping from a maze of leaves

Berries for a fingertip


It’s an adventure

To find the wild bushes,

Reach for beckoning berries


One berry at a time

To fill a cup,

And then another


It’s an urgent task

Cleaning berries that seem to melt

To make a jar of jam


Thimbleberry jam

August treasure saved

For a winter brunch


One category of my blog is dedicated to berries and cherries. The url for my website- blog is:
