You see them in an apricot.
They glow on tangerines.
These colors of the summer sun
are warming and serene.
The flavor of a cantaloupe
and sweetness in a peach
have juices flowing down the chin
beyond a short tongue’s reach.
A tasty piece of salmon grilled
with carrots on the side
served up on lovely coral plates
give tummies quite a ride.
While pondering this poem prompt,
these thoughts came into view.
Be happy you don’t have my mind.
So orange you glad you’re you?

Written for the 2/11/15 prompt at Poetic Asides to write a “patchwork” poem. It may not be great poetry, but at least it’s not about love or winter!
