Persimmons Poem by Max Reif

Persimmons

Rating: 5.0


How did persimmons
get that reputation
for puckering your mouth?

When ripe,
they're sweet
as mangoes.

Should any of us
be judged
before we're ripe?

To the point Max. It is always good to end on a question, especially one that raises other questions, such as when do we become 'ripe'?
