Hey to you, Joseph! :) This is a nice piece, you always manage to make the senses feel more alive. Certainly a presence that is very sweet to you. Heyya, Joseph, we had gone on a trip down, across, and up in the USA. We traveled on a Harley my husband owned. At a campground in Arizona they gave us each a token to play the slots in Nevada. In the desert there were billboards with 'free breakfast', any sort of meal sounded good. We tried our tokens, left without eating..crazy place. Best..Mikki :)

This was sweeter than a mango as well. I enjoy the knowledge of someone who appreciates love and its worth. Perfect form, with excellent imagery. Love, Ivy

Again, Joseph, this one may be short, but it is definitely 'sweet' and wholesome. I love's a unique flavour that just isn't duplicated in any other fruit that I've tried. Now I'm hungry; you always build an appetite up in your readers when you mention food. :( Well, I'm not really sad, we have cherries and grapes, and I have an imagination. :) Hope everything is totally great! Wishing you and yours the very best! God bless!!! Mikki :)

Well I appreciate this poem so very much because there is something so divinely delicious about a ripe mango. One of my favorite fruits. So sweetly satisfying. This is a huge compliment to someone. A wonderful write. Love, Shar
