Savoring Oregon Summers

Succulent strawberries, so shiny they look fake,


Drip juicy goodness to stain your favorite t-shirt.

They are followed promptly by God’s gift for July birthdays:

Ravishing vanilla cake with raspberry filling;

As rich, rare, and radiant as my ruby birthstone!

Hot on their heels come brilliant bursts of blueberries.

I oblige my happy belly, fresh or in cobbler form.

And now this luscious blackberry beckons her debut.


What an oral orchestra, as sensational as fireworks;

What tokens of lavish love to us,

So gratefully accepted.

  1. Scrumptious summer words! May I have the date if your birthday??

    “Clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.” Colossians 3:12.
