Ambrosia

a poem by M. L. Kiser

Fresh

From the

Tropics comes

Sweet coconuts

Crack them open and

Drink their nectar

Ambrosia

In a

Shell.

I like the close-up of the coconuts and leaves, for its colors, light and composition

These are fantastic friend!😄
Looks so refreshing. I love coconut in any form. Must have been delicious seeing it come straight from the source. Wonderful post! 😊

Andi's comments always make me laugh. That's a neat trick from the app. Until I read the caption I thought maybe that was Teresa's hand drawing your pic. Nice shots makes dream of summer grinning

Fresh coconut a delight . I always think when I see a group of tourist in asia, that they are a bit out of place.smile

Like we were, of course. Fortunately our group was, as always, very small (and very good people too).
