ode to an avocado

ode to an avocado
by Catherine Wright TaylorWondrous fruit of black and green
Need only be peeled for its wealth to be seen.

A sprinkle of pepper and salt can suffice

But additions of lemon and onion are nice.

Mashed in a bowl, seasoned just right

Delicious companion for chips late at night.

Ah! what joy and pleasure akin

When we take the time to look under the skin.

I love it. The first time or two trying avocado as a kid I didn't like it too much. Can't get enough of it now.
