Audio Poem/Podcast: Ode to the Berries, by Mark Tulin

Special shoutout to Lucy Dan and her fine site, The Brain is a Noodle, for publishing Ode to the Berries. And to Cecilia Par on Unsplash for providing the feature image.

Over the last few years, berries have been a major part of my morning breakfast habit. You can see me at the sink going through various berries, weeding out the bad and saving the good ones for my oatmeal. Sometimes I feel like Rafael Nadal choosing the right tennis balls. I just don’t take pleasure in chewing berry stems or ones that are too mushy. Enjoy Ode to the Berries. If the podcast is not up yet, please come back.

Author, poet, short story writer from Santa Barbara, California. I write about a variety of topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia, to my years as a family therapist, and finally to my soul-searching present in California. These are narratives that may have a humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry and stories resonate with you.

  2. I have to agree that berries are one of life’s little pleasures.
