When I read this piece, I wished so hard that I could like blackberries as much as in this writing. I even felt a bit jealous lol. I really like the voice and the rhymes in this poem. Thank you for sharing.
I'm glad the prompt word, 'Blackberries' was used by a fellow aficionado. Kiera, your writing ability is astonishing. You describe the adventure of going blackberry picking sound so much fun, which, of course, it is. :) Your use of enjambment worked so well that the rhyme slipped into the background. Nice work! I hope if I ever come to see you and your dad I get offered a slice of this delicious sounding cake.
It has been so much fun to see the poems inspired by these prompts, and this is no exception! I love the playfulness in this, the simple joy of summer and endless amounts of fresh fruit, feelings of freedom and youth, and the rhymes as well. I am actually the only person in my family who enjoys blackberries - especially in my cereal. We have a family friend who bakes all the time and will drop off jams and pies for us, and I feel like blackberries are severely underrated!
Thank you! My whole family loves blackberries, including me, so whenever they're growing nearby we go and pick them. We usually make crumble with them or cake. I agree, they are the most underrated fruit!
