Poem: "Sundrops"

This poem came from the December 6, 2011 Poetry Fishbowl.  It was inspired by avalon_calling.  It was sponsored out of the general fund based on an audience poll.


Sundrops


Tears of the sun,
squeezed fresh,
cling to the twigs
of the fruit trees
becoming lemons

and in time,
lemon drops,
as sweet and sour
as the yellow light
that begat them.
