A Field of Blue

As far as the eye could see
A subtle blue hue
Overwhelming the brown,
And the dark green
Fields and fields
Of wild blueberries
Ripe, ready for the harvest
For the hands, the backs, the sweat
Of the migrant pickers
An ultimate example of piecework
A denim blue before the light blue
Of the August sky
