The Watermelon Date

watermelonI had lunch

With a

Beautiful

Watermelon

Today.

Not an actual melon

(Let’s not be ridiculous!),

But rather,

An attractive

Young lady,

My favorite

Daredevil,

Who just

So happened

To remind me

Of the fruit.

She was

Hot

Under

The

Collar

When we met,

But all

I could

Think of

Was

How

Pretty

She looked.

While she vented,

I listened

Attentively

And

Admired.

Resisting

The overwhelming urge

To count

Her

Adorable

Freckles.

She was wearing

Her scrubs.

Pink and green.

I smiled

And told her

She looked like

A watermelon.

Then I added

That

Her

Freckles

Were

The

Seeds.

I hope

She realizes

I meant it

As a

Compliment.

I was having

A rough day,

And my

Watermelon date

Made me smile.

Just what

The doctor ordered

On a stifling

Summer day.

I’ve never been

A huge fan

Of the watermelon,

But today,

It raised

Its standing

In my book.

Now,

Whenever

I see one,

I’ll think of

My lunch date

And smile!
