Seasonal #poetry


fresh peaches

 

Reaching up my arms

soaking in sun’s warmth

my face catching rays

I welcome these days

***

impatient in Springtime

they say I will ripen

I dangle and wait

hanging over your gate

***

fingertips meet

lips long for sweet

juicy I run

sticky chin – what fun

***

such a short season

never understand the reason

peaches and cream

my summertime dream

****

What fruit do you enjoy in the summertime???

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. In 2019, we started working with an E. African team developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. As a bio major and nurse, it is exciting to use my knowledge to encourage young minds to love science. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  1. Moonie,
    __To agree with Patti’s comment… I enjoy all fruits, but during the summer, I lean toward wild blackberrys, and blueberrys, I enjoy their sweet / tart tastiness! (yup, sort of… Black and Blue taste bids)
    __Love the peach photo and verse… fitting flavors! _m

  2. You write about the peach, Leslie, but your words cover so much more, including and especially life itself. Personally, in summer I prefer watermelon with the juice dripping off my elbows when I wipe the dust from the rind and eat it in the field. But those were summers of long ago.
