an ode to watermelon

it's red,

my favorite color

professed the brown eyed boy

sticky juice

dripping off elbows

grin from ear to ear

another rind for the compost

or perhaps

tossed carelessly into the grass

smile wide

sticky face

please mama, please daddy

can I have more?

  1. The funny thing is, I am not a watermelon fan….. but I love taking pictures of it… the quintessential summer fruit 🙂 And this boy of mine could eat an entire one by his self if we let him!
