Innocence

A tale of Growing up, by inky.

Pears (Pairs?) an image by inky, created in Photofox

The fruit fell lightly from the branch

to underneath the tree

my little nephew picked them up

and asked a question of me

“Uncle, i know pears are ready to eat

when they’ve fallen from the tree

but why do we call them pairs ?

when there’s clearly three ?”

Oranges

An Abstract piece of art of a glass bowl full of oranges

#Fruit #Oranges #Food

Another Acrostic on Oranges

On bright summer days in spain or Greece, you’ll find these

Ripening nicely on a coastal tree somewhere

As the fruit gets ready to drop – its colour goes

Navigating from Green to Orange…a sign the fruit is

Getting ready for eating

Each nice eaten on their own , with ice cream, or perhaps

Some sugar

Green-Yellow

#Coloryourworld #CYW #Green-Yellow

The painter mixed up his colours

a little too much in the mixing palette

as the citrus in the bowl

seemed confused in the final act…

 

Those bananas look like they’ve been picked too early

and are those lemons or limes ?

a confusing picture from the artist

to which watching you’ll spend some time

 

But the green – yellow colouring is perfect

to the greengrocer picking the fruit

he’s picked fruit under ripe – so there’s no room to gripe

while you wait for the colour to take root.
