Today's poem is by Jeremy Hooker

Blackberrying: A Conversation Piece

Whether birds feel joy in their flight

Whether one's lifework might be something no one wants

Whether one will end up living in a cardboard box

Whether love is an element like air or fire

Such are the questions on their purple tongues.
