Beaut Fruit!


A popular word in Oz is 'beaut'.
It certainly applies to fruit!
Red and orange, above all yellow,
Slightly tart but always mellow.
Laid in abundance on a platter
And nothing there to make us fatter!
These I came across on a cruise.
The problem was..... which one to choose.

Rather an anticlimax here:

I have a hard time choosing too! Beaut Fruit...I like it!

Great poem and a wonderful choice.

Hmmm, if they don't make one fatter, choose them all!
(Then spend the cruise in a bathroom stall.)

My word verifier is :drats which goes quite well with the thoughts at hand (or mouth).

Such a clever take on abundance! I enjoyed reading this one - makes me want to grab something healthy and yellow... and sweet!

That was a lovely "beaut" spread on the table and the platter looks yummylicious too.
