to Yellow Plum (in blue
china bowl):

      
     afternoon's slit of sun slips
     between thick curtains
     & woos you to ripeness.
    
     it chooses you
     not for flecks of honey-russet
     held low in your seam of shadows,
     nor your symmetry & swell;
     but because
     
     you slink in shade, sink
     behind green pear & clementine

     & cannot hide
     from each spear of light
     that ricochets
     through--

     even now
     nested warm
     against these lips

     even now:
     a tea-stain stone
     hugging close
     the trashbin floor.

Found this idea and just went along with it... at least I'm writing. Please tell me what you think.

:bulletyellow: A fruity poem worth reading: Swollen Cherry by =angelStained

EDIT: Oh gee, thank you so much! I was down with a fever for most of yesterday, so seeing this is more than enough consolation for this dang cold. This poem felt like a 'breakthrough' of sorts for me, so I'm really happy that it was chosen. What more can I say than: VIVE LA POESIE!

edit(2): wanted to fix the end for a while, finally decided to get it done with. I think it's better, not sure if I should've just cut out the last two strophes.

I like the alliterative style to this poem. I like to write like that myself, so you could call me biased. LOL
