Blueberry Ramble
                                        by Ralph Fletcher

blue blue blueberry blue
sapphires on bushes
picked beneath a blue moon
sweet blue explosions
on tongue and mouth
buckets of blueberries
for blueberry pancakes
cake cobbler compote
blueberry pie with darkblue
juices staining teeth & T-shirt
so many berries in my cereal
they easily out-vote the Cheerios
(that's what I call a BLUE state!)
oh and did I mention I'm writing
the most delicious poem
with a blueberry pen
one that goes on and
on forever and
never reaches
the end?


  1. What a deliciously blue poem! One of my students used "blue explosion" in his crayon cinquain. We were writing from Amy Ludwig VanDerwater's crayon project. https://kidblog.org/class/mrs-simons-sea/posts/dmr49jwcsqvqhzok9c5vgjkvc

  2. Love the title & love the poem! And love the ending...or is there an ending? Kids will enjoy using your poem as a mentor text and taking some risks. I am going to try it out now! Thanks, Ralph!

  3. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him.
