Alpine Strawberries After Breakfast

Hunkering in the garden 
sorting through dewy foliage 
lifting red half-a-bite gems 
to my dazzled tongue. 
One kitten climbs my back 
sits between my shoulder blades 
purring in my ear, batting my pony tail,
another stalks the berry seeking hand
and pounces wildly on wet fingers.
