Ramble

You could ramble
into the forest and pick
one wild berry.
Have you ever tasted such
an ancient sweetness?
Tart as a star
and just as important
because you chose to rest
your attention here,
an instant in the cosmos
of what's noticed.

Three billion years

Earth has yearned
to bear this tiny warted
globe of juice,

her tear of time and hope,
filled with black moons
of sugar just for
your tongue!
O now what will you
give her in return?
