Melon

#CYW #Melon

Maybe its me – but I always

expected the colour of a melon would be darker than the one

like you find in your box of crayons – its innards more red than pink

of course, buy a honeydew it’s as yellow as the sun

nice sliced up – they’re sweet regardless of which one you choose

Wild Watermelon

#Coloryourworld #cyw #wildwatermelon

Wonderous fruit of passionate pink

Armoured by thick green peel

Tasty at any time – breakfast through to supper

Each slice taken from you bursting with flavour

Rounding on the tastebuds to make them water

Maybe its summertime when you are at your best

Enjoyed under the blue skies of a

Long summers afternoon

Or perhaps its when the chef has diced you up and placed you

Next to the Oranges, Mangoes and Papayas in a fruit salad
