Bird on a Bare Branch

Attempting to fling a frail song in my little corner of the world

April (or I’ve Never Written a Poem Before) April 24, 2009

Papaya trees and blue sky,

Coconuts and lemons.

Cool breeze, salty sea,

But mangoes not in season.

Avocadoes, passion fruit.

Brightly-clothed women

Selling banana bunches, tangerines.

But pineapples not in season.

    Sounds like a song. I hear a Jamaican beat . . .

    And not bad for a “first” poem.
