Prunes

Mouldering
jet in a jar
miraculous almost
metamorphosed from petalled white
cascades of April showers
heated in halcyon hours
lazy fat matronly baskers
swell sponge-like into summer drops
rotund and diamanté purple
tested on waspish tongues
beads of suspended animation
outlasting even winter

Björn is back at DVerse with 44 words contained in a jar for  Quadrille #14
and taking Tuesday time to mount the Open platform at real toads

  1. Smiling I am. In my mind…..that’s what should be done with prunes…yech! Let them moulder in a jar.
    Lots in this piece…but my gut feeling came out with the title! 🙂

  2. I like the way you kind of rewind the preserved fruit and present us first with the blossom.

  3. Hi Laura! I love the way you move so elegantly from ‘mouldering jet’ through
    ‘petalled white / cascades of April showers’ to ‘lazy fat matronly baskers / swell sponge-like into summer drops / rotund and diamanté purple’ Outrageously sensual!

  4. Wow, you packed a lot into this 44 word writing from the sweet flower to the sublime fruit…love these lines: “lazy fat matronly baskers/swell sponge-like into summer drops
    /rotund and diamanté purple”…wonderful!
