Sweet Summer

Written for:  Poets and Storytellers United
Weekly Scribblings #29:  “Writing About Food”

Salivate in Summer
for juicy fruit of plums,
peaches, watermelon,
cherries, berries, and grapes.

Ice cream would do nicely
for dinners–I would love
chocolate-mint chip, coffee,
butter pecan, and peach.

I could easily skip
regular balanced meals
in Summer, but one can’t
live on fruit and ice cream.


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
