Succulent Summer


Oh, how I love the wonders of Summer!

Mango, Pineapple,
Tomato, Tomato, Tomato
For Salad, For Soup
Heirloom, Cherry and Grape

Fresh Basil, Watermelon
And Dry, Crisp Wine
Bubblies with fresh Oranges
Avocados, Chanterelles
Sweet Peas
Meyer Lemon
Oh My!

Rhubarb and Corn
Plump Blueberries
Strawberries
And Peaches

The rainbow aligns
Sweet nectar teasing
As the pot of gold,
Buds of my Desire
Summer consuming,
Vitamin D delight!

  11. I love the repetition of the word "tomato". So evocative of the plethora of tomatoes in the summer.
