When warmth creeps slowly into each day,
strawberries and lemonade come together into my glass watermelon pitcher.
Fresh, fleshy bodies floating amongst frozen liquid.
Smooth touching textured with seed.
One clear, then white.
One red, then white.
Outside, they are different.
Inside, they are the same.
Then white yogurt with frozen berries of blue in watermelon glasses.
Crystallized juice can be so pretty.
Candy cantaloupe from Our Earth.
So pliable it can melt in your mouth.
My favorite knife cuts into all this yummy goodness for me.
Outside prickly, but cute.
Inside delicious, absolutely delicious.
And color - Oh The Color!
But it's not all just about the fruit -
Veggies are tasty too!
If you look closely,
you'll find the tiniest capsules of liquid that burst when you bite them
like fireworks in your mouth.
If an apple a day keeps the doctor away,
what do you think all this will keep away?
