ON MY MIND
The warm sunny days of summer are here;
which wakes up my craving
We're lucky to have plump and plentiful
stocks of delicious local watermelon --
Black Diamond variety is a
sweet and seedless favorite here.
For someone who grew up loving watermelon
(but spitting out the seeds),
seedless Black Diamonds are still a wonder.
I'm told open slits in the middle
of a freshly sliced melon
is a sign you've got a perfect watermelon.
I wish you "good watermelon" this summer.
(Kinda missing spitting those seeds, though.)
