A Water Melon's Truth - Poem by yoonoos peerbocus

Roving back through wild centuries
At rust and ripeness time
To land blood wet, martyrs fed,
A water melon still conceives
What alone bears peace-a sweet heart,
Summer's blood, timber scent-

Each slice for life time sweet,
Munch you as you would grapes or kisses.
Her only hope, wish for nothing on earth
Save eternal be her internal love's season,
Akin to sea plain where no autumn comes,
Though all things go, not one lasts.

    Real beauty of expression.
    Each slice for life time sweet,
    Munch you as you would grapes or kisses.
    Her only hope, wish for nothing on earth
    Save eternal be her internal love's season,
    Akin to sea plain where no autumn comes,
    Though all things go, not one lasts.
    These lines speak volumes for a short yet virtuous life.
    Tanks for this magnificent poem.

    A pickadilly of a poem, frumtastical,
    melon masterful, seed fanatical,
    no reason yet it's truth
    and season all surrounds us.

    The watermelon is filled with nutrients.
    Vitamins, let me mention those heaven sent;
    There are the b vitamins, and of course vitamin c
    But the most important if consumed in excess is vitamin p.

    We must find inner peace from inner sweetness. That's the trick, the fixed solace factor, even when life's variables drab undyingly. That's the trick. Great majestic poem (Report) Reply

    every slice shall lead a taste bud to the truth of taste. Seasons, centuries or civilization will change but the we are looking for the same taste. But sometimes in searching for the aim, we forgot how to be not selfish.
    i like this poem and it is good.
