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
