30 Poems, 30 Days 2020: Blueberries (Day 24)
Blueberries in the supermarket
We forget where they come from
Unlike how they are seen in the wild
Lucky are those who plant blueberry bushes
As they are always available when they’re in season
Did you know you could grow blueberries in a container?
Protected from the elements until harvest or you move them
Usually we only think of one blueberry, but there’s a variety
Even those that are pink, and used in many ways
Leaves made as tea to strengthen our blood
Best as a snack, or baked within a pie
But no one asks why they’re blue
