Raspberrties and Strawberries

Red foods caught my child eye:
Radishes hurt my tongue,
tomatoes’ textures confused
but red raspberries and
strawberries never let me down.

Hot red peppers left me panting.
Cherries and apples could be tart
(and cranberries).  Beets stained my hands
but red raspberries and
strawberries never let me down.

I loved the chilled watermelon
and pomegranate too, though both
were difficult to get into—
and red raspberries and
strawberries never let me down.


A silly little poem just for fun, inspired by Sanaa's Weekly Scribblings #8: Red Fruit Rendition.

I have always loved raspberries because I could pick and eat them right off the bush in our backyard. They always tasted the sweetest. I like how raspberries and strawberries become the thing you can count on. They never disappoint.

Having trouble commenting. Sigh. Your poem and Jae's made me long for berries. I came home with a strawberry rhubarb pie. Not a healthy way to consume them, but will satisfy the sweet tooth!

If this is silly, it’s in the best way — lots of innocent fun. Delightful, in fact.
