Strawberry Stems

Strawberry fields burst in late June
Bursting with water on summer soil
Reaching hands between leafs full
Waiting berries picked so soon
Soil pushing stems up and out
Life pumping through the veins
Creating life so sweet through sun and rain
Waiting for summer hands to come looking
Plucking berries from life support
To be enjoyed as a summer torte
Fresh sunshine on tongues thirsty
Sun falling in leaves
Being pulled through roots and soil
Up through limbs and pushing out a heavenly treat
I am amazed at this gentle beauty
No poison oak or ivy no thorns to distract
Just a simple leaf asking for no protection
Giving itself to the next calling hand
True beauty to behold
