Juniper Jewels


Friendly Fairy Tales

Blue Juniper berries

Jewel-bright juniper berries
dangle like azure fairies
amidst needles unfurled
drawing the eyes of every bird.
Berries stay sugar sweet until
fermenting is complete.
Come spring, greedy bluejays
fall down tipsy on Tuesdays,
leaving feathers ruffled after,
which sparks crow laughter.
It’s a party in the umber undertow
between islands of frothy snow.

Note: Some birds actually eat too many fermented berries and behave badly. Once I discovered that, I just had to write a poem about it. I also ran across a hilarious video of African animals overindulging on Marula fruit. A more serious poem about juniper berries is here. Have a great week!
