Ripe raspberry stain
on a yellow tablet—
one of several waiting
when I got back
from busy somewhere in the heat.

First-year canes producing
delight again and again.
You speak with gestures—
this paper blessed
with remembering.



Happy Birthday, Robbin!!

  6. Indeed, Happy Birthday Robbin!
    Brings back 60 year old memories of 80 feet of boysenberries and a bowl of cream.
