Alien Shades – #NaPoWriMo20 – Day 24

#NaPoWriMo 2020, Other Poetry Add comments


Having written about the lovely Orla and her ornately-arranged oranges yesterday, Day 24’s prompt asked me to:

write about a particular fruit – your choice. But I’d like you to describe this fruit as closely as possible.

So I had fun.

Again 😉


Wispy-haired punk

Wearing stripes with your mates,

Hanging out in alien shades

At the bottom of my friend’s garden –


I never really liked you;

Was more enamoured

With Cheery Red’s patch next door.


He was always a hit with the birds,

And really into tennis.


Did you eat a lot of Gooseberries as a child? I’m not sure we ever washed them first…?!

Big hugs, stay safe, and we’ll reconvene for Day 25!
