Huckleberry photo worth a thousand words

A hearty handful of huckleberries. (Vickie Garner Sienknecht)

WILD EDIBLES — Vickie Garner Sienknecht said she's not much for poetry — shunning my request for submissions of Huckleberry Haiku — but this photo from last weekend, she says, clearly indicates how much she loves her huckleberries.

If I were to put Haiku words in her mouth, it might go like this:

Verse comes not to mind

Passions focused t'ward a pie

My heart bleeds purple.
