This poem comes from Carole Chinn-Morales, poet and regular participant in the writing workshops I lead.

Cherries on a lime green plate
Each one glistening deep red
in the morning sun
Beautiful…

As if to encourage us writers
To bloom
Flourish 
Mature

Eagerly awaiting the blossoms
Scratched out on our notepads
Be gathered
shared
savored 

Delicious…

I lead writing workshops in the Bay Area, and spend much of my so-called free time writing. To support my avocation (and my family) I sell residential real estate in San Francisco; for more about that visit RealEstateTherapy.org or CynthiaCummins.com.
