Thanks so much for sharing this one, Brooke. I loved how you worded it, dining on nature's fine designing...(not word for word what you had, but I loved that part!)

Hi Brooke,

I like the 6/7 syllable count, it is musical and makes a great read. Good alliteration in berries/burst/ brook/burbles. This is one of those poems I wish I had written! Great writing, my friend....blessings, chey

Very nice, Brooke. I love the hymn "Now Thank We All Our God". An excellent hymn to set to your poem. Thanks for sharing :)

This is a very nice piece. I can't wait for the spring and all the wonderful bounties it affords. I think even though we did not have a bad winter I will be happy to see the spring

I could connect with the imagination cos I just love nature and all that it gives. Beautiful presentation of your thoughts. I think you've got a good flow except for the "designing", didn't sit well with me. just my thought.
Cheers.

Superb! Classic ring to the language, rhyme and meter, and the deference to the One who made it all and the cycle of life/water/growth and natural rhythms of the earth was marvelous. Amen. Preach it, sister. :)

wonderful, Brooke. The description of the fruit is enticing especially with "all season they've been saving." I'm back in my childhood once more at the mulberry bush by the creek.

I'm awed. Your talent leaves me frustrated. That you can bend your message to all these different forms is a great mystery to me. I've read it several times. The only thing I can figure is that your brain is wired differently than most of ours. LOL! You're a phenomenon!

You know something, this poem really did touch me in more ways than one. First, because of the picture and colors you used, it was perfectly written. Second, because it made me think of some of the things in my life which I've taken for granted, like eating fresh vegies or fruit right from the vine. If He hadn't provided, we wouldn't have it, and I never give any thanks for it-I just take it for granted that it's there for the taking. Thanks for bringing that a little closer to my life through your words.
