Thank you Caio :)

J - There are so many ways to regard a blackberry. There is so much folklore, theology and superstition connected to this fruit I think it is wisest to choose the most sympathetic to our sensibilities.

I placed a sprinkling of elderberries in with the brew to ward off evil, just in case :)

It´s so moving! Just three photos and 15 words (yes, I read them again and again and counted them, don't know why): a circular thread that goes from red to black, from black to red, from sweetness to bitterness, from bitterness again to sweetness.

my thoughts are with you x x

Jenny said...

Yes, the photos are really wonderful!

Funny, with blackberries... I think that they look very tasty, but then when I eat them they taste like sweet wood or something. Yes, so much folklore to do with blackberries.

Very beautiful photos! I like the feeling in the photos.

Thank you all for your comments. I'm feeling much better now than when I posted this.

I'm looking for poetry of the same caliber of WB Yeats Stolen Child. Any suggestions?

TO THE LADY CREWE, UPON THE DEATH OF HER CHILD by Robert Herrick
Why, Madam, will ye longer weep,
Whenas your baby's lull'd asleep?
And, pretty child, feels now no more
Those pains it lately felt before.

All now is silent; groans are fled;
Your child lies still, yet is not dead,
But rather like a flower hid here,
To spring again another year.

Like with the change in Season. The different 'fruits' appear in our mind's eye.
I am liking your pictures,you; and your words that compliment such.
