Ode to an Orange

A whiff of citrus – vibrant,
shiny, dimpled and thick,
your fingers move, probing
textural ecstacy,
as your tastes await
the sweet tartness within.
Peel away the layers
softly, envelop a piece,
let your tongue steep
in a myriad of flavors,
with the lingering scent
of summer under a blue sky,
look around,
and all is well again.
