The sweetness of carrot halva, Aphrodite’s nectar,
The tangy tangerine, puckering the edges of my jaw
The luscious ripe persimmon slathered upon my chin
While watching a fiery sunset.
The creamy papaya
Cool cantaloupe quenching my thirst on a scorching hot day.
Lest we forget the animal kingdom
The lion’s mane suitable for the King of the Jungle
The glorious tiger adorned in stripes,
Goldfish, starfish, even octopus aglow underwater.
Crab claws protecting its territory,
The sly fox, marmalade kitten,
The transformative Monarch butterfly
And who could forget the Weasley clan?
What about the wild bird of paradise
The destructive force of the beautiful forest fire ablaze in all her glory?
So uniquely beautiful, it stands alone, unable to rhyme.
Both cool and hot, wet and dry, succulent and tart.
Plant, animal, sea creature stone.
An enigma with a tough skin and juicy interior.
