Today's prompt was to write about a fruit.
Feck it, it took me ages to decide on which fruit to write about...and then I did two!
Lemon's more exotic brother.
A citrus kiss, with a Mexican twist.
Green, green as a tropical dream.
A perfect hand-sized grenade
of bittersweet blast.
Summer's tangy taste that teases -
but rarely on its own pleases.
Only coconut can soften its tirade.
(It adds teeth to tequila, believe me.)
Never quite as refreshing as it seems.
Hydrochloric acid, a guest once said
when presented with the shocking green
of a 'lime-ade'. Like ying and yang
you can't really have one,
without the other.
A striped green pinata
with orange-red pulpy insides,
it was the most exotic fruit
I had ever beheld.
As big as a barrel
it was awkward to cut
needed a knife with a serrated edge
and help to hold up.
Black seeds like teeth
you had no choice but to spit out.
Eat and spit - not as exotic
as it might sound.
Despite its Mexican colouring
disappointed to find -
it really only tasted
of its namesake - water.
