Spitting Watermelon Seeds

Watermelon slices.
That smell so ripe and sweet.
Take me back in time again.
When mother sliced the treat.

Sitting in the kitchen.
With the window opened wide.
Spitting watermelon seeds.
Out to the other side.

    Hey Dan, The only reason I could spit them out the window was because we lived in a second floor apartment that faced the back yard (everything cement - in the Bronx), and the pigeons ate the seeds! LOL :)

    Hi Sara, Thank you so much for this! Yes, spitting out the watermelon seeds was almost better than eating the watermelon itself! LOL

    Sweet memories which was in harmony with mine, the seed, the juice and the peels non escapes. Whenever the seeds escape is to have the balls. Thanks samia.

    this is one of the best: both for the food that you used (it's one of my favorites too) and for the clever way you wrote about it. LOVE it.
