Spring


The fruit Hangs from the tree

waiting to entice those moving around

with the colors changing to the right shade of orange

the rest of nature takes notice

the squirrels,the bats, and the birds take their share

as the first few fall from the tree

loquat

ripe loquat

 

 

then the armadillos and chickensĀ take theĀ first few that fall from the tree

as man fights those around for the choicest fruit

we all celebrate the loquat fruit

bake it, or eat it raw

enjoy the soft sweet flavor

of the sweet orange fruit
