“……and we received healing as we heard the berry pickers far away!”








“……and we received healing as we heard the berry pickers far away!”





As Cuddles and Jitters patted and tapped on Spottedy chest

And the old goat began to breath easy under such touchy blessings

Ministering friends and healing Goat all heard humming in crest

O’er the near hills twixt healing bed and dark pits of dire stressings.



“What ye hear?  what dat humming?  So far, yet so near!”

Did Spottedy and healers all whispery-whistle as one.

“Shush, shush, dis hummin’ pours wellness into my bier,”

Did Spottedy caution healing friends in smiling tone.



“Ah, ah, now I haves it!” did spark up Jitters as he danced.

“Now I smell the drift of berry juice all drippin’ in the hums!”

“Dose foragin’ friends under Old Crow has founds foods so scanced!”

Thus did small smells and hums bring new hope to these tums.

    Uplifting and sweet… You’ve mastered this lingo GranBee! 🙂 BTW, Twitter.com still shows up as your URL on my posts. Kinda odd and it happens with another blogger too.

      I have NO IDEA why my URL is not showing up correctly on my gravatars when commenting on your posts! Whenever I double-check them, they show up correctly, no matter which computer or internet connection I am using! Do you think you have a virus? Anyway, so very pleased you enjoyed this post!

    For someone like me, born and brought up in the urban settings, listening to such melodious way of creating the unity with the work, could happen through some excellent pieces that music directors have used [ in hindi films].
    These pieces were probably meant to break the monotony of the work or to develop camaraderie, but ultimately have risen to the level of a prayer to worship your work.
    Wish I could lay hands [ or should it be ears, really] to such tunes /songs !

    Hi Rose, I lost time last week, so sorry for this late comment! Please know I’ll see you soon, even if late! Anyway, you have to assume your first two lines would draw me in:
    “As Cuddles and Jitters patted and tapped on Spottedy chest
    And the old goat began to breath easy under such touchy blessings”
    (Loved touchy blessings)

    I was so happy to see Cuddles and Jitters and your language, again, is delightful and adorable. I just love it, along with this line:“Now I smell the drift of berry juice all drippin’ in the hums!” All of your lines are wonderful, but these jumped out at me and we’ve been eating so many berries, that this poem was absolutely delicious! Not to mention, the hope it conveys~Thank you and hope you’re doing well! Hugs!

      Yes, the berries in summe are so very refreshing–healing us from much “heat”, right? So very pleased you enjoyed my staging of your Cuddles again here! Always glad to have your feedback, no matter when and where!

    Here’s to happy times in the berry patch! I’d be joy-filled too 🙂 I remember as a child being able to find a berry patch (wild strawberries and blackberries) just by the smell on the air. I ate more than I put into my bucket! There’s something about fresh berries that make you feel better, making for a happy day. Love this granbee!

    Such gratefulness and hope … abundance is there … only at the distance it takes to believe and partake in it! Blessings to you, Rose!
