Zest of Limes

I live where
lime trees bloom
before spring has come,
where early unattended fruit
drop from the trees...
I gather some
in a silver metal bowl
and place them on a table.
These green and yellow limes
are round, redolent, with a clean
citrus flavor.  I squeeze one,
release its oils, and rub my hands
with wringing motions,
cover my nose to breathe
the fresh, clean scent --
and marvel, once again,
how such simplicity
can cheer me.

    Leo - It really is the simple things in life that can give the most enjoyment, and are often overlooked. Wonderful poem!

    Leo, much like myself, you can draw enjoyment out of life's most simplistic offerings. It seems childish to some, but we're all children sometimes. ;) - Raven
