I Wish I May, I Wish I Might

Slices of a star

 tasting you can be bittersweet

five pointed yellow shape

I knew I had to have you

the larger star is sweeter you'll see

filled with seeds, bountiful wishes

toss it in a bed of green leaves

an exotic treat, for your taste buds

spice it up, however,  you please

oh precious star, you're an evening delight

please forgive me, as I take a bite

surrendering to the night....

I wish I may, I wish I might

have this wish tonight

  2. very nicely done. I am finding it interesting how many fruits, when sliced across the middle have star shapes in them.

    1. Hi Dwight, I found that to be an interesting tidbit as well. I will have to re-think how I cut an apple.

  3. Oooh, another new fruit! I like a bit of a tang in my salad, too. Stars and wishes - a classic combo!

  5. Excellent choice of fruit, Truedessa, one I haven’t come across on the poetry trail yet, and I love the way it begins with ‘slices of a star’ and the brightness of the rhymes.

    1. They are mostly grown throughout Asia but, they are now grown in warmer climates here like Florida and Hawaii.

    1. Bjorn, they can be a tad sour but, the shape is so enticing. Maybe, dip in some chocolate and try it.

  11. Well, certainly I have to look for one here in Bend Oregon ... they sound delicious (the riper the better it sounds.)

  12. Such scrumptious use of language here especially; "bountiful wishes/toss it in a bed of green leaves/an exotic treat, for your taste buds/spice it up, however, you please."💝💝

  14. Love to see the balance of feelings of joy to see the fruit and the apologetic stance upon having it. Very lovingly written True! Stay safe Ma'am!
