One Morning at the Fruit Farm

Blueberries don’t grow on trees

Or thorny vines

But on bushes


In round berry clumps very much

Like grapes only

They ripen separately


Gently loosen the blue berries in

Each clump and

Leave the green


Dislodge sleeping mosquitoes from

Underneath each bush

And get bitten


Other berry pickers concentrate on

Filling buckets beneath

Threatening summer clouds
