A Year Since


So that’s it,
Your gone and not coming back,
A year feels so long,
And yet it’s also gone,
I cherish the moments,
And smile at the memories,
Knowing that I can’t call you,
Or just pop round for a tea,
You will be missed,
Not forgotten,
And most of all,
You will continue in me.

Fruit Rhyme 10 – Pineapple


Probably underrated,
Inevitably misunderstood,
Never written about,
Except to grumble,
About its appearance on,
Pizzas with ham,
Pineapple should be,
Loved by,
Everyone.

Fruit Rhyme 9 – Lemon


Lemon like lime,
Tastes just fine.
Lemons are sweet,
But also taste neat.
Lemons can juice,
Or spread loose.

Fruit Rhyme 8 – Durian


There he ran,
The durian,
All spiky and squishy.
***
It stinks,
It stings,
Growing up there in the tree.
***
All green,
And spiny,
Don’t fall on me.

Fruit Rhyme 7 – Lime


I see the Lime light,
That’s not a crime like,
I like the late night,
With a Lime bite.
***
Bitter and sweet,
All citrusy and sharp,
Just like a bad night,
Out in the Lime light.

Fruit Rhyme 6 – Cherry


Cherry rhymes with Sherry,
And also with berry,
But not with carpet.
Cherry is very,
Sweet like a berry,
But not hairy like carpet.

Fruit Rhyme 5 – Tomato


You say it’s not so,
But I know tomato,
Is a fruit not a veg,
So let it be said,
Now give it a rest,
It’s a fruit nothing less.
