Fruit from the Fantasy World

Poetry, Writer life

Oh dear you!
Such a beautiful fruit,
As if you came,
From a fantasy world.
 
You belong to a place,
Where dragons are real,
Everything is surreal,
Your beauty is ethereal.
 
Your bright pink cover,
With spikes yellow,
Lets my imagination soar,
Into a world so mellow.
 
And oh yes, your spiky layers,
Just like amber flames,
Reminds me of spikes,
That run down a dragon’s spine.
 
Oh you, such beautiful fruit,
You’re exotic, even rare.
Just like it would be,
If dragons were real.
 
And when I cut through you,
And slice you into two,
It’s like I opening a portal,
To a different world.
 
Thousands of black seeds,
On your plush white flesh,
Just like the night skies would be,
In monochrome reversed.
 
And when I sink my teeth into you,
It’s pure bliss, an ecstasy.
Why do people do drugs,
When they could do you instead?!

For NaPoWriMo Day 24.

      1. I can’t help but spot these things. I went to college to be an editor, but don’t feel bad–I make typos all the time. I’ve also learned that things look different online than they so in, say, MS Word, so it’s easy to make mistakes uploading. I do that all the time too. 🙂 You’re a good writer. We learn from our mistakes. None of us are infallible.

      2. Thank you so much Charles. I really hope to spot these errors too. 🙈 Also, what did you study? Is there any course that helps us spot the typos better? 🙈🙈

      3. I majored in literature & creative composition. As far as spotting errors, I learned a lot in our peer editing groups. But also, they always tell you to read your material aloud. People really rarely do this, but being visually handicapped, I have to use a text reader so I hear the mistakes, which is why they want you read the material aloud. I find it to be even better than using a spell checker.

      4. I wouldn’t say you were lazy. We just don’t think about it. When you read aloud, your focus is different. I think that’s why it’s easier to catch mistakes. I don’t always do it myself. <3

      5. But of course, you’re quite welcome. <3 For what it's worth, that's the only typo I've ever spotted in your writing since I started following you. 🙂

    1. Thank you so much Rashmi. But we have to agree, that was a little too farfetched and exaggerated. 🙈🙈🤗🤗😘😘 Anyways, where’s the fun without exaggeration? 🤪🤗😘😘😘💕❤️

  1. Colourful…fruitful…tasty writing…with deeper meaning….

    “And when I sink my teeth into you,
It’s pure bliss, an ecstasy. 
Why do people do drugs,
When they could do you instead?!”

  2. Even Dragon Fruit would never have thought about its beauty, outside and within. The entire praise for the fruit is amazing but I couldn’t move my eyes from the last two lines. Very well written, Shreya. Keep it up. What a perspective you’ve given us. Thank you so much for such wonderful writing. Happy blogging. K.

    And the last stanza…it amazed me…🤩

    1. Thank you so much Anushka. 🙈🙈🙈 I’m not really good at taking compliments. I really don’t know how to reply. This means so much to me. Love you so much. ❤️

    1. Hehe… Thank you so much Rishabh. But I wish I could have put in some information too like you did with Mulberry. You did a stunning job! 🔥🔥🔥

  4. I have to agree with Blahblahblah on this one. And with you. Why do that, when you could be “doing the dragonfruit”? Does that sound like a new dance, maybe?

    1. Thank you so much dear. This means a lot to me. Also, I read your book’s sample, which was just one poem. 😬 I’m planning on buying it. But I just quit my job, so postponing it until I get a new job. 🤪🙈🙈 I’m really looking forward to reading the entire book. Much love. ❤️😘😘😘

      1. Your welcome 😊, I do wish I could give you a free copy, but Amazon only allows me to do that every 90 days 😬I do hope you get a new, brilliant job and I hope you become successful in whatever you do 💕 💕 💕
        Maybe you can publish an ebook of your poetry on Amazon? It’s free and i will definitely read it. Just a suggestion☺️

        All the best and stay safe ❤️
        H.R Phoenix 💖 💖 💖

  5. I loved this, Shreya! It is beautiful to watch you stretch and strengthen your writing. I could leave a million kind words, but it would appear your readers have taken care of that. Well done, my friend! ❤😘

    1. Thank you so much dear. Your appreciation means so much to me. I hope to keep creating content that you enjoy. Much love. 🤗😘❣️💕❤️

  6. Such a lovely poem. You did an amazing job showing the beauty of this fruit. I’ve never had one before tho. What do they taste like??
