REMBERING PEACHES AND A VACATION

In the bigness of the Apple city

Walking down some street

Where fruit sellers are

I stop to purchase

Peaches


Seen them in the movies before

Read them in books before

And now here i am in NY city

Buying Peaches


Reaching indoors

I wash them 

And bite into a yummy hidden yellowness

My first taste of 

Peaches


I eat them every day

What's a vacation for

If not to eat

Peaches


When i return home where

Summer cyah done

There will be watermelons

Green variegated thick skins

And sweet crunchy red flesh

I will keep cool then, eating

Watermelon slices.

  4. I love peaches! Unfortunately, I can't eat them raw due to an allergic reaction, but they are in my favorite pie. I could taste them here.

  5. Peaches at the Big Apple! How nice Gillena!Certainly a memorable vacation that will sustain for a long time. Hank used to get discounted tickets for Broadway at the World Trade Centre then. Enjoyed NYC! It has everything!

  13. Along with our annual trip to the apple orchard, we also had a day set aside to visit the peach orchard to buy a bushel or two for mother to can. Now I'm longing to peach pie!!!

  14. I love that despite the fact that we now send fruits all over the world, there is nothing like fruit not travelling far from where it is picked.

  19. Gillena,
    Interesting how we associate food with places we've been, i guess because all our senses are at work adjusting to new sights and sensations. You bring all this to life with your words. Well done.
