Sexy Tomato

WordNerdGirl prompts us to write about a favorite food and share that visceral experience with our readers.   I am tending to a large vegetable garden this Summer and my favorite thing is eating tomatoes from it.  Enjoy.

Grasp
with a gentle twist
and free it from its vine.

Rinse
under the running tap
watching swirls go down the drain.

Examine
its ruby beauty and bruises
inhaling its warm dirt aroma.

Pierce
its skin with sharp teeth
streaming forth juices on your chin.

Salt
the inner tender pink flesh
still warm from the Sun.

Savor
the sweet and the salty
fruits of your garden.
