1666


all weights and measures -
labels jostle attention
colours seek to please

glimpse of strawberries -
light bounces off clear plastic
from grocery store lanes

What a luscious red those strawberries!

Mary said...

Sad that strawberries don't grow in your climate there, but I would guess you do have other very delicious fruits that probably don't grow here. It all equals out, I guess. Smiles.

I bought some strawberries today and added them to my spinach salad. They were delicious.

Strawberries always seem to growing somewhere in Australia so they are rarely out of the shops. One of the advantages of living in the "Big Country"!

Myrna R. said...

I bought some big, organic strawberries. Yesterday. Yum.
Love the cheerfulness you bring in you writing. Thank you Gillena and I hope you had a great day.

Susan said...

I also had strawberries from the store, boxed in plastic. How could I pass them by!?

C.C. said...

Aren't those strawberries...all neatly wrapped with the light shining off the plastic....glorious and tempting? Mmm. I can't wait to go buy some myself :-)

Sumana Roy said...

strawberries are not available in our place though we get plenty of food with strawberry flavor but not the fruit...last year one of my colleagues planted strawberry but mosquitoes played havoc with it...we're waiting this season...lets see what happens..your poem makes me long for those luscious items :)

There is a lot of joy here...i too love seeing the new fruits arrive...we are starting to have strawberries here too - they are lovely!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Strawberries grow here in Florida, but they are ripe in February and March ... Now it is too hot and they are gone until next year. But when we travel to Oregon on the pacific coast in June they will just be getting ripe there. So we wait!

I scrolled around your blog and enjoyed your poetry and pictures ... A lovely first visit to you and beautiful Trinidad!

Laura said...

The brazen red packaging and images, make those strawberries more than simply enticing; ready to eat, instantly!!
