A Taste of the Sun


Ominous sun
fruit of the earth
juicy, hot
dry, taut
nourishing.

I like the contradictions in this, "ominous" and "dry" describing this juicy sunburst. Good work.

This poem makes me SUPER hungry. Nothing like the fruits of summer.

Terrific, brief piece, Laurie. I love the comparison, kiwi to sun. Well done.
