Midwinter; three ripened

midwinter
strawberry blossoms 
in summer white . . .
intuitively
I should know not to touch

—GUSTS, Fall/Winter 2012


three ripened
homegrown strawberries . . .
I cut them
for us to share
like loaves and fishes

There's one decent strawberry plant left this year (above). Oops, I did touch the petals, and a couple came off.
