Delicate Fruit


Delicate Fruit

You stroke the dimpled skin before
sliding your thumb just below the navel.
Tenderly pulling back the outer layer,
you reveal the lingerie lace integument
beneath the surface.
Your hands glisten with juice
as you gently separate the segments.
You press it to your lips,
delicately probing with your tongue
to draw out the fragrant flesh inside.

About ninian-poetree

I live in a sitcom. No seriously. I share a century home with an Englishman and a cat named Sophie. Not living with us are my three sons and a step-daughter who visits every other year or so. I'm a mum, a writer, a teacher and an MUFC fanatic.
