#NaPoWriMo – Fruits

Clementine season
Great source of vitamin C
Small seedless orange

NaPoWriMo Prompt – And last but not least, our daily (optional) prompt! Today’s prompt is a fairly simple one: to write about a particular fruit – your choice. But I’d like you to describe this fruit as closely as possible. Perhaps your poem could attempt to tell the reader some (or all!) of the following about your chosen fruit: What does it look like, how does it feel, how does it smell, what does it taste like, where did you find it, do you need to thump it to know if it’s ripe, how do you get into it (peeling, a knife, your teeth), do you need to spit out the seeds, should you bake it, can you make jam with it, do you have to fight the birds for it, when is it available, do you need a ladder to pick it, what is your favorite memory of eating it, if you threw it at someone’s head would it splatter them or knock them out, is it expensive . . . As you may have realized from this list, there’s honestly an awful lot you can write about a fruit!

Good afternoon and welcome to day twenty-four of napowrimo. There may be a lot to be written about fruit, but apparently not from my mind. I figured I should try to write something before it got too late. I may work on something more later. I hope everyone else had a better time with this prompt. Less than a week to go in this crazy 30 poems in 30 days month of April.
