Blood Oranges – A Poem

Image by Joanjo Puertos Muñoz from Pixabay

Pulmonary sketched orbs of unsung valor,

Pour into nature’s beaker,

Its magenta vermilion nectar.

Blood oranges, blushingly shy visitors

To the citrus family mansion,

Thirsting to fit in,

With cousins green limes and lemon.

Not to mention,

Famous step-sister yellow orange

Whose pulpacious personality, a family tradition.

Differences aside, when tangy juice is at stake,

Together, one fruitful family they make.

  1. I loved this one when I read it yesterday and the funniest coincidence, I was reading Tich Nhat Hahn’s little book “Be Free Where You Are” earlier that afternoon, and there was a paragraph describing the eating of oranges mindfully. You have embodied that practice visually, this tasty poem! “Pulmonary sketched orbs of unsung valor,” – my favourite line. So creative. 🍊😍 “
