Ripened Fruit

This was inspired by my breakfast this morning — inspiration can be found everywhere — and is for FOWC: Taste.


The red on my coffee cup:
Not lipstick but juice
From a ripe red strawberry
Savored this morning.

The joy is not false,
As taste of sweet
And bitter waltz, leaving
Traces of unexpected color.

 

One thought on “Ripened Fruit
