Restless, weary heart—
yet a rippling lullaby
soothes me from the pool.

of how you went down.

Trucked

Photobucket
 

Fruits and vegetables
trucked from irrigated farms—
who will buy today?
 
When you munch mangoes,
mind your manners, my munchkins—
no mindless dribbling!
 
Let your dreams bear fruit—
mangoes, bananas, apples
papayas and plums!

Savory suppertime dreams—
