Very nice, indeed:>


Madhuri | 2 comments Apple Red

by: Madhu

For an Apple Red
And its sweet pretense
A young girl’s heart
Lacks all defense

One small taste
Promises eternal sleep
With the lonely company
of dreams she keeps

The mind hopes in vain
for the desire to ease
as fantasies never will
reality appease

But temptation denies
Having ever played the part
Of a loyal friend
To the mind or heart

Not one for reason
It yearns instead
With a snow white hand
For that Apple Red

Hannah (artzy) Here's my poem.

Pink petals passing
Scents above so high
Painted porcelain perfection
Blossoms caress the sky

Pastel hues falling
Slow fluttering grace
Pink petals passing
Lining streams in lace

Pink petals passing
Smoothest travel by
Soft essence floating
In most subtle lullaby

Inducing springtime slumber
Upon a satin shore
Sailing with the current
Pink petals pass before

Written by Hannah


Emily | 399 comments I copied this to make it valid, I was accidentally deleted before....


Cursed

I wander about
in the hanging gardens
of my Persian queen.

Thirst has filled
my veins
need
on my mind
just one bite
is all I need.

'Tis but an apple
rosy and mouthwatering
she'll never know...

I grasp it
in my palm
and my wanting
grows
pulling me to
eat it.
Juice flows
down my
dry
throat.

Yes, I have done it!
but she sees me
with her eyes
she curses me.

A thief of the queen
does not acquire
a second chance
to make up
for a laps in action

Now I wander
the desert of my Persian king
exiled, condemned, and cast out
cursed beyond pardon.

Written by Emily

I really like it.


Roxanne | 9 comments Hello eveybody! I feel like joining you and that's why I made up a poem.I don't know how good it is, it was sth on the spot.Hope it's worth reading it.

I would like to speak about
One of fruits I really doubt
Being only for the mouth
And lacking of spiritual sound.

Apple is the one I want
Showing you how much it does
Knowing of its minerals
But also of some secret stuff.

First of all,it's energising
Eating apples in the morning
Your digestion will be working
Clearly and withoug problems.

There is also like a riddle
Tightening your hoppe you won't
Meet your doctor any longer
If you eat apples a lot

On the other way they aren't
One of the best seen fruits,
Once forbidden, up in heaven
God just knew what didn't suit.

Finally,I'd like to say
It doesn't matter in what way
You see aplles because they
Fill your stomach and your...brain.

Hope you understood what I wanted to say by means of this poem.Have a nice day!

All of the poems are great, and I did enjoy yours, Christa. LOL. ;)

Indeed. I liked that one.


Anthony Gramuglia (AnthonyGramuglia) | 49 comments Well, it looks like everyone else is doing this, so lemme have a go at this. *cracks neck*

The gentle skin of an apple
is so easy to bruise.
Bounce it
Crunch it
Pop it
So many ways to be ruined.

Still, why bring ruination to
such a wonderful thing?
Eat it
Taste it
Munch it
So many to appreciate.

A lot like people, yes?

Haha, that is funny. (I think you are talking about all the alcoholic drinks you can make with fruit right?)


Tho mango, rum, and lime
twirl, shake, twirl, shake
a wonderful juice flow by

lemon, lemon, and more lemon
with a lot of gin
and the world turn black

apple, ice, vodka
blend, blend, blend
how my mind when numb

water, water, water
flushing down the drain
so much pain

The end ;0

Musings of Fruit

I set to myself a contest
to write a story of fruit
but sadly this chore
is one I cannot do.

I sit down and try to think
of something beautiful and unique
but putting down words to describe the sweet surp
is one for which I am weak.

Alas for my winning I fear I shall never taste
The luscious tang of winning a game
At which I am the worst.


The end


Nibha | 3 comments Fruit poem of Strawberries
Strawberries that in gardens grow
Are plump and juicy fine,
But sweeter far as wise men know
Spring from the woodland vine.

No need for bowl or silver spoon,
Sugar or spice or cream,
Has the wild berry plucked in June
Beside the trickling stream.

One such to melt at the tongue’s root,
Confounding taste with scent,
Beats a full peck [...]


Niall | 12 comments Ah, that would be poetic license ;)

What! Not hu! I don't like bananananana's! I like strawberry's. But Banana's are gross. However your poem was nice, if inaccurate.


Niall | 12 comments everyone likes a banananana :)

Hahaha, thanks for explaining that, I was like "Oh beautiful, but what the heck does it mean?"

Erin Here is my entry.

Red

A bright crimson flower
Is my humble start.
As I grow into a berry,
I've been told I'm quite tart.

Pierce me and cut me,
Expose me bare.
Behold! Hundreds of seeds!
Ha! You can only stare.

I will not come easily.
Be ready to work,
Or you can just forfeit;
I'll wear my victory smirk.

A handful of seeds
Gives a drop of sweet juice.
I am fit for kings,
Even the daughter of Zeus.

But oh Persephone!
Was I really worth
The four months of death
That come upon the earth?

I've become a symbol
Of life, wealth, and power.
But I'm just a pomegranate,
A bright crimson flower.


Tabi {Don't think~Just write~Tell a story} (FeyGurl) Oh, I see now that you explained that. Nice Thomas! :)


message 42: by [deleted user] (new)

This is a description of the surroundings of a fruit bowl that sits on a window of a friend of mine, it's abstract I admit, but I had a great time writing it, and thank you!


Tabi {Don't think~Just write~Tell a story} (FeyGurl) Wow, I love both of you guys poems...but Thomas...how does your poem fit in with the whole fruit theme?


message 40: by [deleted user] (new)

The Window.

A stare to space is never coutning thoughts in ones mind,

No hidden purpose lurks behind the ever moist windows,

Sometimes you really are looking at glass cups so dirty,

A carton of milk half empty, half full, stewing as it grows.



Butter tubs of yellow and blue smell putrid to the nose,

The steel altar where dishes drain luke warm now serves,

Clinking jars splutter jams in droves to sweet to taste,

Broken painst sprawled across tibers to old with curves.



Cleaning liquid sits tall with pride as a man stands over children,

Plastic hides in every corner of home and room and life,

Your widows get wet again and again and again in seconds,

Chained to hollow thoughts and minds now twisted in strife.


message 39: by [deleted user] (last edited May 12, 2012 05:38PM) (new)

Tiny but delicious
Tempting but nutritious
As dark blue as can be
The only blue fruit you ever will see.
Find it on a bush.
Find it when it's mush.
Wherever you find it
You will know it
As the blueberry.

Good, now I've gotten around to writing a poem...finally! ;)


Tabi {Don't think~Just write~Tell a story} (FeyGurl) Thank you, thank you. (dramatic bow) lol ;)
I know , Christa, as I wrote that, my mouth started watering...
You do that Veronica, looking forward to reading it. :)


message 37: by [deleted user] (new)

I have to write a poem myself....gotta do that. ;)
That's a cool poem, Tabi!

Oh those both sound wonderfully delicious. I think I need a peach right now. I don't know if I want to write a poem now.


Tabi {Don't think~Just write~Tell a story} (FeyGurl) Here's my poem.

The Peach

Golden and ripe
Smooth and lush
Glistening with dew
Sparkles in the light
Hanging from the branch
Tempting

Soft to the touch
Silk to the fingertips
Stroked from its
Lofty perch
Falls readily into the
Palm, sitting there
Waiting

Sweet and juicy
Melting against the tongue
Nectar, thick and golden
Tender and succulent
Rich and lovely
Is the peach


message 33: by [deleted user] (new)

Neat!


Kortni | 163 comments Sweet and juicy it falls from the vine.
Someday these could be turned into wine.
Or juice so sweet that it melts your heart, too.
Juicy red green purple or even blue.
Sweet sticky the vines are prickly
These could make a man fall, sickly.
Drunk and clumsy he would fall.
While the one who doesn't drink much would stand tall.
Little kids drink this juice in the morning.
With their breakfast the sun rising.
Falling from the vine, the boy picks it up, and eats the sweet grape.


message 31: by [deleted user] (new)

That's so true.


Kortni | 163 comments It the seven ANCIENT wonders of the world. ( we just watched a video about them in class and my friend would want me to make a point of it)


Tabi {Don't think~Just write~Tell a story} (FeyGurl) Ok, that makes it better for me, because I wasn't too impressed with the first one.


message 28: by [deleted user] (new)

They get better as they go. I thought the first one was Okay, the second pretty cool, the third sweet, the fourth amazing, the fifth awesome, the sixth griping and the seventh a happy ending. I hope the author writes some more.


Tabi {Don't think~Just write~Tell a story} (FeyGurl) Oh yeah!!! I read the first book and have yet to read the rest. They are pretty cool...:)
