I dream of many things—some realistic, others not.
Love the idea of the beautiful ocean, moon, stars and sun.
Anyway, thanks for checking my profile, and have a good day!

Under the Sun Fruits

May 14, 2022

FREE WRITING

Under the glaring sunshine, 
prunes, apples, bananas, grapes, 
all grew like light.

Taking them out, 
squeezing their juice, 
drinking, their warm, and sweet water,
eating their tender, soft, flesh, 
smelling the scent of their life, 
and tasting the taste of the sun. 

Fermenting others,
putting in pots of tea, 
giving as gifts, 
the rewards are so endless.

Yet, still, drying the fruits, 
under the same sun, 
the one that nurtured them, into a dried body. 

The juice would be gone, 
their seeds would be tiny, 
the sweetness won't be so fresh--but convenient it is. 

The pieces, slices, would be thinner, 
but humans would get their variety, you see.

    Oh my- the way it's written is so aesthetic and delicate. The imagery is just *chef's kiss*.
    It's hard for me to choose my favourite line.
