Sun kisses

Sun smiles as he kisses cherry red tomatoes his resplendent colours,

Who would have thought tomato was a fruit?

Until the biologists said so,

Am I glad they did? Yes, indeed!

Tangy tomatoes turn,

Sugary sweet,

While mother cuts them into quarters,

And sprinkles generous amounts of sugar,

Does the curry seem lost without those tomatoes ?

Nah, they’ve done their bit, rightly so!

Summers or winters,

Rain or spring,

Now many have passed since the little kid I was,

Never do I toss them into the frying pan,

Without helping myself,

Cutting them into quarters,

With generous amounts of sugar,

Like mother would do,

Every time,

I’ve something to say :-

Dear fellow bloggers,

A big thank you to all of you for reading or liking or commenting. I’m sorry that I’m late in replying as I’m busy with my studies and will be so for a period of 3 months. I’m stealing from time to write a poem or two in a week. My sincere apologies for not visiting your blog or commenting. Will do so after the given period. Thank you all for your continued support.

  1. Delightful poem that is a great nod to traditions and reminiscences! I taught at a university for many years – and when our student workers started to feel bad about not coming in to work due to class or exams I’d tell them – Studies always come first! So remember – no guilt! Studies come first!!!


  2. I love tomato slices sprinkled generously with sugar. Beautifully written, my dear. All the best with your studies. I’m just that you’ve managed to find the time to write a poem even during this time!


  3. This is such a gorgeous, gorgeous write, Kitty!! 💝💝 I resonate with; “Does the curry seem lost without those tomatoes? Nah, they’ve done their bit, rightly so!” 😀
