Forgive Me Your Plums

In the tight centre of
flesh pressing its flesh,
a rough skin stone waits
in this small yellow plum.
It inspires poetry, it’s cold,
straight from the icebox.
It’s the season for Post-it notes,
for sweet plums whose stones
are tight-wound in its rug.

Written for dVerse Poets, Quadrille Monday. Inspired by William Carlos Williams,”This Is Just to Say” from The Collected Poems: Volume I, 1909-1939, ©Misky 2022 Shared with #amwriting and @dversepoets on Twitter

  1. Excellent quadrille Misky. I found you perspective on the word season to be most effective. Great visual match.
