Blackberry Wood

Thorns piercing flesh
Guarding the dark treasure
of warm sweet juice.


  1. Wonderful words - summing up the essence of blackberries in autumn.

    There is nothing like the smell of blackberries ripening on the vine to pull one back from the edge of adulthood into childhood in summer. I find myself eagerly doing what I always did in the past, picking the berries off the vine and savouring the sweetness while staining my hands and my moth and sometimes my clothes lucsious berry purple/red. Some of the best things in life will never, never change.


  3. The blackberries seem particularly luscious this year!
