your thorny vines

lips stained purple

Mmmmmm....I used to pick blackberries when I lived in Florida. LOVED them! Unfortunately, wild ones are in short supply in Manhattan. :)

berries for the pie
two cups
your thorns drew blood

reaching for blackberries
the juiciest ones
just out of reach

soft fruit
dissolves
against the palate

Another yummy haiku prompt and berries get everyone juiced up ;p For those who are lacking blackberries in their midst, rest easy knowing we have a surplus here in the PNW!

Happy Autumn everyone!

Our blackberries were nothing that juicy (lack of rain, I think) such feasts are nore a childhood memory - stained purple, as your haiku.

Yummy. Stained lips, stained fingers, stained tongue. Delightful.

Your picture makes me salivate. Nice pick up on the thorns and sweetness.

Wonderful. Reminds me of Mtume's 80's hit, "Juicy Fruit."
