Yellow Pawpaw

Up there in my greeness
Green fingers build nests
Sheathe me against stalking eyes
Sickles dither, appear nice

As day runs its wheels
My green skin peels
Wears me up with yellow
Tells beauty of my interrior

Eyes widen into devouring rings
Stones hurl through strings
Sickles hover over my neck
Beaks tear me up wth peck

And am everyone’s food
Vulnerable despite leafy hood
All feed on my meat
To them,a satisfying treat

So is life
When you’r ripe
Hands gather to pluck
Of your gains they’l suck.

  1. Predictable but nice with the use of words.

    1. Nice having you around.

  2. @Himalone : I liked these lines:

    “–When you’r ripe
    Hands gather to pluck”

    This is true for the pawpaw and a myriad of other things.
