Brand New

Brand New

There was a time
when it was all Brand New
untouched by human hands
droplets oozed like morning dew!

There was a time
when the folds peeled back
exposing the inner bud
in readiness for the attack

There was a time
when aroma so sweet
Permeated from within
a fruit, ripe, ready to eat!

Then came the time,
of honeysuckle dreaming
bursting forth like a debutante
in the hours of sunlit streaming

Sunkissed, dew laden
bursting from the very core
this deflowered belle of the ball
Could only scream
