Strawberry Emotions (Please Join Poetry Potluck Week 42 Today!)



Red with freckles,
Plump in sunlit gleam,
Fresher than pickles,
Perfect if served with ice cream.
.
Sisters and brothers,
Desires in their eyes,
Without permission of their mothers,
Swallow strawberry pies.
.
Tasty treat,
Strawberry emotions,
Succulent and sweet,
Juicy commotions !





My submission to Jingle Poetry Potluck Week 42,
And to Blaga’s spring favorite,
My favorite fruit is strawberries!

Ummmm! Strawberries fresh from the vine. As truly summer as cousins' frolics in rain puddles.

Jim said...

You pictures and the poems match very good. I like your description of 'strawberry,' especially the freckles part.

Serve them with ice cream and share with the brothers and sisters and you're ready for juicy sweet relations.

Thanks for dropping in on my OSI today. It was a fun post although I wasn't satisfied with the way I handled my own prompt. I swore last time that I would not ever suggest another. But there I went!
