    my mango might be ripe
    and sweet
    red
    just the way I like to eat
    yellow juices running down
    my greedy chin
    fingers sticky
    still squeezing firmly
    to get everything
    out of the skin.
    your mango might be hard
    green
    crunchy and tart
    sour even
    eaten with some salt and pepper
    or hot sauce
    brings out all the flavor.
    some mangos end up in between
    force ripened
    hard
    pretending
    to be soft and sweet
    just a layer of ripeness
    covers
    that hard heart inside
    they only look good
    not worth the ride.
    whatever the taste
    feel
    or color
    each mango is what it is
    to the taster
    none of us can taste
    the other
    until we bite into the same skin
    only then
    can we tell
    the real thing.

    Dear Nomad,

    MMMMmmmm......scrumpshalicious!!!!!! I LOVE THIS!!!!!!!! So creative, with meanders of suggestive and pleasing descriptive imagery. Indeed, tasting a Mango that is just right is soooo satisfying. I love the title also, and is what captured my attention, along with the structure of the poem. The content was well executed, and my mind is dancin', and thank you for that!! I love the layering of My Mango to Your Mango to Our Mango, of the same skin, thus the real thing. You Go Girl!!!! Simply Mangolicious!!!!!!!!:bravo:

    Well...now I am hungry for a Mango! It is true that sometimes things we want and love turn out to not be exactly what we first thought they would be. I like that perplexity of life. I love this poem!

    Thanks for commenting, Benny...yes, we do all have to be very discerning in this life, and see beneath the glossy surfaces.

    yummm, mangoes are my favorite fruit...well, maybe behind the papaya!
