Melons

Summer's loud laugh
Of scarlet ice
A melon
Slice.

Summer is mangoes. And mango slush. And icecream. Lots of it.

Was I the only one who imagined a cantaloupe when reading that?

Bushra: I walked by some mangos yesterday and the scent was so thick and textured it was like walking into a cloud.

Yasmine: gorgeous. Happiness used to be one of my favorites. Thanks for reminding me.

akds: i don't know too much about melons but this poem makes me want to eat one.
