Bee my Valentine "Blueberry Banter & Blueberry Blues"

Bee my Valentine "Blueberry Banter & Blueberry Blues"

Blueberry beginnings and Blueberry ends,

A Valentine verse for my family and friends,

A blueberry poem, I write as I should,

Blue-writing is funny and funny is good!

This poet tried writing with blueberry style,

The writing was fun … the writing brought smiles!

Valentines, like berries, are chosen with care,

Nurtured and treasured, love-ventures to share,

Blue is the berry that turns love to true.

This rhyme is for giving … I’m giving to you.

What Valentine gift for my Valentine friends?

A Valentine memory, I’ve not much to spend,

We’ll go to a restaurant called

“Blue Berry Wishes”

A most special treat … full of blueberry dishes

To get there we ride on The Blue-berry Train.

And wonder of wonders … we see blue-tinted rain!

On the mountains we marvel at berry-blue snow,

We see blueberry-clusters and blueberry-rows,

They’re bluer than blue these berries we see,

They stop and we pick them with glorious glee!

In this blueberry Heaven, every thing’s free!

This bounty of berries makes beautiful dishes,

I can see why they call it “Blue Berry Wishes.”

A blueberry breakfast or blueberry lunch,

A blueberry supper or blueberry brunch,

There’s blueberry this and blueberry that,

Our eyes can’t believe a berry-blue cat!

This feline is friends with blue-birds and blue-jays,

Tis merry and mystery … what more can we say?

There’s blueberry more and blueberry most,

Our berry-blue waiter and most merry host,

Sent blueberry wine for our Valentine toast

Blueberry chocolate or blueberry mousse,

Blueberry truffles with berry-glazed goose,

Or simmering, succulent blueberry stew,

A savory dish, my favorite … it’s true ;~)

At home, perhaps I can make it for you?

Blueberry bagels with blueberry jam,

Blueberry biscuits with berry-soaked ham,

Blueberry pancakes with blueberry sauce,

What fun to cook berries … to stir and to toss!

Blue-bubble cones and blue-blasting pops,

I can only eat those in my blueberry socks ;~)

Banana-blue splits topped with berries are hits,

I love about berries - they don’t have those pits.

Blueberry pies and blueberry cakes,

Blueberry blizzards and blueberry shakes,

If I eat all of this my tummy will ache!!!

Blueberry muffins with blueberry cream,

I must put an end to this blueberry dream!!!

I send Valentine wishes to family and friends.

I am sad to convey that my poem must end.

I had a berry-good time with this Blueberry verse!

This blueberry babble … I need to rehearse,

I’ll read to my Valentines this Blueberry greeting,

And then we’ll be off for our Valentine meeting.

If you were the writer, which “blue” would you chose?

I hope the “child” in you … enjoys this blue-berry adventure ;~) It was inspired by my love of Dr Seuss books and the goodness of blueberries ;~)

Please share it with your children/grandchildren … create one of the Blueberry Wishes dishes ;~)

February 10th 2020 Valentines Wishes for the Fellowship of Bees

I write: “In His Light”~ Fay Vietmeier

If my words make you think … Great ;~)

As “iron-sharpens-iron” … I enjoy bantering with other BEES … your feedback is as “honey”

A glimpse of the “Bee” called “me” ;~)

My caring nature makes me an advocate. My curious nature makes me a “queen of questions” … but gifted with the ability to listen ;~) I am a woman of deep faith, a blessed mother, a voracious reader, a blossoming writer, a grateful person, and a lover of beauty … I treasure family, true friendships and my loyal clients ... enjoy traveling, learning, good movies, good wine and golf. I’m a “heart-to-heart” communicator.

Pun of the day.

@Preston 🐝 Vander Ven
Oh Preston ... I love your rich observation
Reading poetry aloud is something I often do and
My mindset was toward children & Dr Seuss ... who I LOVE
And I LOVED reading Dr Seuss books to my son when he was a child (now 22)
The musical alliteration & repetition is contagious & memorable ;~)
Thank you for the "sweet sharing" of my blueberry writing ;~)
