At my friend's estancia in Argentina this past January, we gathered breva figs. I'd never tasted anything so sweet and good before!

I'd been wanting to write a poem about them and, together with inspiration from Juana de Ibarbourou's poem, "La higuera", I wrote "Breva", an ovillejo.

I'll be sending it out in search of a home, along with my triolet, "A Fieldstone Fence" later on today.

Wish us luck!
