The Watermelon Way


Slice It Or Cut It Up In Pieces

Either way is wonderful

Watermelon is perfect the way it is

Even though I will put whipped cream on it

To make it even more inviting

I love the first bite to the last

So refreshing on a warm day

They have improved on it

Since I was a kid

Now it comes with no seeds

More to eat and nothing to slow you down

The best part of all

There is plenty to go around

One nice size watermelon can feed seven or more

If you are lucky

You might even come back for seconds

John Hansen I will have to check out your story/flash fiction The Waterford Way. I love the way watermelon tastes with the water explosion in my mouth. Absolutely delicious. I also add watermelon to other fruit to makes a fruit bowl of passion. The happiness spreads to the rest of my day. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. 2 days and making a slow comeback on commenting. A project in itself.

Gypsy Rose Lee Have you tried one since you read my poem? I was hoping I created a lost desire. So easy and quick. A little messy but fun. You can even get the watermelon all cut up. I like to get the whole watermelon and share it with our neighbor.Thank you for reading and caring. Have a beautiful morning. Happy Labor Day.

Mark Tulin Somebody had their thinking cap on for that one. I see you have a hat on so the next greatest idea might be just under your hat. Good luck as always. I love to see creative people and amazing things happen. Think of the joy one person created that spreads to so many other people automatically. I know I personally will love watermelon to the end of my days. I think if more people enjoyed the things they love they would be not so quick to get mad or angry. Watermelon is a step in the right direction. To a better way of life.Thank you for reading and caring. Two minds are better than one. All it takes is a little brainstorming and I am ready to go. Let me know if any ideas pop up? Have a good afternoon.

Dream On, you just have to love watermelon nice and cold from the refrigerator on a hot summer day, especially. The ‘no seeds’ these days is a real bonus.

When I first saw your title ‘The Watermelon Way’ it reminded me of a short story/flash fiction piece I wrote here a few years back called ‘The Waterford Way.’

Now, go enjoy that watermelon.

Ice cold watermelon is always a treat on hot days. Haven't had one in a long time. I hope you have a wonderful weekend,
