strawberry kiss

#Selfie of the author, age 15

The memory is a strawberry
Fresh on the vine
With a twisting pluck-
It is mine
A red gem gleaming in the sun
Tart freshness and sugar sweet
There’s a hint of the earth in it
A safe dirt kind of taste
The way a garden smells after rain
And the earth is in me now
Dusted through my skin, see the freckles…
I am the fertile green vine
Back arching with the lightness of morning dew
Fresh fruit hanging from my tongue
Come pluck a sweet one off my mind
I’ve got the sun in my eyes
And earth in my skin
I am your sweet summer snack

Give Sharkey a piece of your mind.
