A Year of Poems – Day 201

How do you choose your favorite color?

“If you swing a bucket fast enough
No berries will drop out.
Look for the flash of blue
Falling to the earth from the silver ship.”

I did, but I saw only the blue sky,
The twinkle in two blue eyes
And only after I stretched and jumped
Peering into the ship
Did I see the crew of berries –
Blue and calm as a mountain lake,
Fresh and sweeter than the water.
