blackberries

prussian purple sprays, each sweet-swollen round of rounds bursts with crimson juice, stalk-thrust out as if reaching to fill Autumn's hungry gaze or...
Cherry

storm cooking

unseen fingers flex kneading clouds of soughing dough as gulls white flakes, salt flavour here and now with calls of far dangers journeyed on sea's...

Posted on Sun, 08 Dec 2019

It's masterpiece example of free verse, line ends, space between stanzas. Even though all the information apart from last line and title, are about movement and stress, it ends with such a sense of peace and relief, I think because of the rhythm...
