This delightful poem uses the berry (perhaps ?) to symbolize all those sweet, beautiful things God gives us through nature. This WOULD make a great song. Good job

Your poem, As Berries Burst With Juice, is such a lovely poem. It has a lovely rhyming scheme and the cadence is smooth and easy, too.

Never before have a appreciated miniamalism in poetry as I do after having read this piece. You can say so much in so few words. It's very impressive.
Great job!

This is beautiful, Brooke.
I am hungry for berries
the description and vividness of the fruit are so lively and full
the ending is perfect, mentioning God, creator of all
I like the rhyme scheme, too.

In reading your well written poem, I could not help but smile. How delicious fresh berries are. I can easily recall the taste and wish I have a fresh berry pie right now. :-) JW

This is well written and provides sage advise for all who must ear to live, and this means everyone.
I thank the brook and the sun,
I thank the gracious vine,
And then I thank the Lord,
Who made Creation Mine.

I am thankful for every day
I am thankful in every way
I am most greatful of all
To the Spirit
Of the Awesome One

I can literally taste the wonderfully flavoured berries and feel the juice on my tongue. That, right there, is an image sent direct to my senses.

It's amazing to me that you can here a meter, identify it, and then figure out how to write a poem that matches it. WOW!!!!! I get stuck with the identifing the meter. Then on top of it all you write not only a poem, but a great poem.

Brooke,
What a nice poem for a wintry day. it has been snowing here the last couple of days, but this poem reminded me of the blackberry and raspberry patches we have out back.

Made me long for summer (and I'm a fall/winter lover too).

I LIKED THIS SET OF LINES
No chef could proffer more
than this on which I'm dining,
a prime al fresco meal
of nature's fine designing.

This is humble and gorgeous. Taking time to observe nature's bounty, then being wise enough to partake of it. The picture is restful and appetizing. :-)
Your words always make the ordinary seem extraordinary. :-)
