My Mango Poem

by sunnilicious

Mom sliced up a half ripe mango for chow
And us children shared it with happiness.
I wonder why only one grew on the tree...
Looking at the mango peel I felt scrappiness,
But each kind of mango has its own eating style;
Big, small, green, red, ripe, stringy or cooked brings a smile.

Seasonal Mango Picking has fat burning benefits,
And to eat a mango is to feel satisfied.
However, most mangos are at least two fruit servings
And it holds more sugar than natural or processed cane.

Enjoy mango shared or processed to be kept safest;
Salad, juice, pudding, ice cream, condiments and more...

Tropical goodness
Mangos aren't a superfood
Popular marvel.


NaPoWriMo Day 22 Writing Prompt - Write a poem about mangos that invokes it as a symbol of a particular time, era, or place.

NOTES: I started writing about mangos in a sonnet, however, I became emotional and had to order a slice of mango cheesecake. So, this is just a poem about my personal knowledge about mangos.
