I write what I feel…

Ripe Papaya

Orange sunburst, plump and ready

Anticipation can be heady

Honeyed nectar, sugar sweet

Far and away too good to eat

Feast for the eyes, the lips await

The mouth begins to salivate

Expectancy and expediency meet

Of one mind, action is complete

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people!

  4. Yes, sounds refreshingly worth anticipating till morning… the closest thing I can think might excite me more,than anticipating the participation of a papaya (food wise anyway ) might be … to Tango with a Mango!!!

    • Haha, that may be arranged… we have a SA band, who are still very popular and have been around for some years, called Mango Groove! I’m sure you’ll find them on YouTube. Bless you too, Paul.

    • So, so sweet, Patrecia.

      I think you should treat yourself, Patrecia. It is delicious on its own or added to a fruit salad, i.e. with other fruit, typically sliced banana, orange segments and any other fruit you may have around, served with cream, icecream, custard, etc.

  15. We also call them pawpaw here. I have always liked them, but with all these new hybrids around I can say I love them now. They have more flavour I think.
