Berry Nice, Thank You



Brightly colored beads
Jewels left behind
On naked arms and bare necks.
Recently washed
By the angry rain.
Refusing to break away
And tumble like the colored leaves.
Determined to glow
Even when the white snow
Crests their faces
In months to come.
Or, perhaps, waiting until someone eats them.
