MANGO SPELL

 

I’m sitting in the shade of the mango tree.

It’s a white-hot day but it doesn’t bother me

’cause it’s cool in the shade of the mango tree

eating mango.

 

The round ripe fruits of the mango tree

glow like sunsets all around me

and a warm rich perfume dizzies me

from the mango.

 

So there isn’t any place I’d rather be

than the dark green shade of the mango tree

with golden mangoes tempting me

on the mango.

  1. Hi Jeanie, Thanks for posting the superb picture with my poem. I wish my mango tree looked like that – but it has been thoroughly possumed- no leaves, let alone fruit.
    Best wishes for the New Year.

    Dianne.
