    dotsStrawberries in Bloomdots

    Strawberries bloom among your soul
    Scarlet flesh and sun touched seeds.
    A soul full of vines
    Behind watery eyes
    I can feel the pain
    Some deep down hurt
    Every plant needs dirt,
    If it wishes to take root.
    So, I admire
    Hair of strawberry
    Seeping out the top
    I tempt a taste
    Since some are sweet
    And others are not.
    Now, you got me
    Hanging on the vines
    But I figure even crushed fruit
    Can be turned into wine.

      SWEET. deinfinatly a fave. loved the way you turned the description of fruit into something else. slight personification, i think.
    guess this is going on my fave list, which is good since its real short.
    loved the way you didnt drift off as well. made it something real.

      that last stanza is brilliant. optomism that's easy on the stomach, very rare.i love how only parts of it rhyme, that it dosen't sound forced.

      this poem hits very close to home not just because i have strawberry hair, but because i can relate alot to your words of truth, and your optimistic point of view on being patient with love and waiting for it to bloom. beautiful poem!

      I thought it was an original piece and I liked how you metaphorically used the "strawberry". I agree with the others that the ending was very positive and worked wonderfully!
    Love,Peace,Joy! tif ; )

      Just love the way you used the strawberry metaphor throughout. That's my kind of thing. Especially like how it tied into the strawberry hair, and the fact that "dirt" is required for the strawberries to grow. Really, all of the ways you worked that metaphor are good.

    As for the structure/wording, I think I would change "but the stem needs the dirt" to "but the plant needs dirt", because it's not only the stem that needs dirt, and because I don't like repeating too many "the"'s. :)

    Very nice poem.

      I love the ideas, and how you used strawberries. It just adds an interesting touch! The BEST line, I thought, was
    "But I figure even crushed fruit
    Can be turned into wine."
    Amazing! Those lines are truly creative and a wonderful was to word that thought. Nice one.

      I drew from it an immense sense of longing and even passion. I like what you're saying. I love the last two lines very much: "But I figure even crushed fruit Can be turned into wine."
    Oh. It's so beautiful. Sometimes the thing that ruins us is the thing that we belong to. I'm pretty sure that that was one thing you were trying to say. I loved this poem. Moving.

      beautiful piece christopher! well done here. the vision was superb. the strawberry reference is quite original- its so rare to see a new way to look at old themes, its quite brilliant. i dont think ive ever seen a strawberry in bloom reference ever, in all the thousands of poems ive read. brilliant job.
    semper my belly button. hehe.
