the bowl of strawberries

we moved the table
to the shade of the cherry tree
and ate the strawberries
with sugar and cream
because that is what you do
on a hot summer day
and when we returned, late at night,
it was still warm enough
to sit in the garden
and look at the milk-white moon


  1. Oh how lovely. I'm missing both the strawberries and the cherries on the plot this year. Definitely must plan my travels better next year. K x

  2. and did you see the partial eclipse of that beautiful moon?

  3. I looked at the same moon as you earlier that day. Alas, I did not have strawberries.

  4. No moon here yet...I was just thinking about you!

  5. I miss those yummy english strawberries! Deliciously wicked with cream and castor sugar ;-)

  6. One of the only things I have enjoyed eating that is sweet! Love your picture!
