My Ode to Figs!

My Ode to Figs

How I love to eat you,
your fleshy body ripe
with juice and crunchy seeds. 

My one regret is that you
only last for a short while,
a summer fling
a May to September romance...

I only wish you
would bloom forever
I will miss your tasty goodness
your sweetness upon my lips.

Until we meet again.

I get my figs at Produce World in Orange or off of my friends backyard tree. Mickey-shown below-saves me cases of them when they are in season.
