Green Fruit MALIZ ONG

They hang in the tropical forest

Fruits of varied colors and shapes

Spikey and prickly with so many bumps

The asparagus green is the very best


Hidden among the flood of hot green

They are a certain treasure to be sought

A burst of divine sweetness fills the mouth

Refreshing moments in between


The question, though, is what made the ancients pick these ugly fruits and open them to find they were so wonderful? 😉

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. to see tropical fruits growing in their native habitat is a very strange sight indeed – anonas, pecans, papaya, on and on – but they taste especially sweet and fresh.
