Writers’ Weir: The Invitation

Feather with dew drops.

I left a note

by Mr. Coffee

saying I’ve gone

hunting on my knees

for the nagoon berry

with its ruby juice

and subtle flavor.

Not easy to find,

and hard to pick,

but so worth it.

Come with me

down a quiet summer

path leading to a gem

so perfect it lives

in memory long after

the jelly’s left the jar.
