My wife and I
planted black raspberries
several years ago
for our granddaughter.

Last weekend
they were finally peak ripe
for the first time.

From the porch swing
she looked out into the garden
her eyes
a million miles away
and said,
resolute and still,
"I want to eat some berries."
So we did,
the past feeding the present into the future.
