Strandition

Goldilocks wanna be

She heard blondes had more fun

She wanted to be one

Dye her brown hair

She chose to take it slow

Hairdresser gave her streaks

Of the shade she did seek

Gradual change

When in Roma

Nose

Turned up

Pushed away

Poor tomato

She refused to eat

Raw or cooked, either way

Ketchup she could tolerate

Her parents couldn’t understand

She’d eat ketchup and tomato soup

Couldn’t stomach the original fruit

Although it was never documented

Precisely when she tried them again

Perhaps on a fast-food burger

When mixed with the condiments

Culinary heaven

And it was game on

Stuffed with tuna

Tomatoes

Tasted

Good

Harvest Moon

Fields are overflowing

Represent summer’s toil

Gifts from abundant soil

Equinox shift

Ant Trap

In the distance, they saw

Tables laden with food

Not wanting to be rude

They headed out

One by one, forward march

Conveyances they lack

They’ll carry on their backs

All they will take

Determined oh they were

They kept the goal in sight

Focused with all their might

On the picnic

sally forth

Those

Ancient

Explorers

Looking beyond

Were exercising

Their curiosity

Wanting to know even more

Than someone told them existed

Because they imagined that something

Was waiting for them, to be discovered
