Tomato Posted August 13th, 2009 by Betty Octopus Oneil

Tomato so juicy
so firm and so round
I can hardly believe
you came from the ground
Filled with vitamins
light and Love
my pallet delights again
in my mouth you I shove
upon the white bread
sprinkled with pepper
layered with lettuce
and it tastes even better
Bright red and meaty
that's how I like it
not tainted with toxins
that leave me decrepit
No wicked witch
with a poison apple
I've made the switch
and chose to go natural
Corporations can make
their "ugly" tomato
but when I bake
I'll go farm to table.

Daffodils

 
I fell in love –
Taken by the innocence of
Child-face daffodils:

Their perky April fanfares –
Clarion calls from yellow-ochre brass bands
Presaging, rejoicing, calling us:

‘Here we are! Here we are! ’
