to my dear
oranges / of twenty years / ago 
thick bitter rind
even / with mottled pores / beautiful
tangy citrus euphoria
dripping / sweet tart pulp / sensation
groves bearing fruit
pluck / joy from flowering / evergreen
abundant bright colours
ochre / nestled in soft / verdant
met human greed
houses / have replaced your / land
but nothing can
replace / your fragrant blossoms / happiness
reminiscing upon the orange groves that used to be everywhere

    Replying: Oh, and fear not, I am a goddess. I didn't say in my bio that I am a "she," but my username is Coolgirl, so... XD But anyway, I see how that can be confusing, will put in my bio now. <3

    Ohhh love the structure of this one! It's like two sections interlocking beautifully. There's so many ways to read this! I can't pick a favorite line or anything because each one is so vivid.

    This piece feels so nostalgic, like an entry in the diary of Life. It's so sweet and simple, yet it really leaves an impact. Especially with that line,
    "ochre / nestled in soft / verdant
    met human greed
    houses / have replaced your / land"
    And that ending, gosh I adored it.
