Poetry Month #24: Cherries

I did write this poem yesterday, although delayed its posting until this morning. The NaPoWriMo prompt was to write about your favorite fruit.

I don't know about where you are, but it has been a hot few days in Southern CA. It feels like midsummer already. I have a great deal of difficulty choosing just one favorite fruit, but it's possible these summer vibes influenced this one.

So here you have it, a little ode to a little summer fruit, also known as our favorite topping for a sundae or a pretty please.


A classier pair of twins were never seen

So irrepressible in cheerful sheen

Such luscious flesh in modest darkened red

Not over sweet, contemplative instead

Above, they cling together at the stem

With gentle pride at blossoms birthing them

But only hoping to be quick consumed

Their core discarded that they tightly roomed

So little fruit not satisfying yet

Compulses savoring another set
