Day 22

The prompt: Write a poem inspired by earth day

"The Loquat tree"

The fruit hangs heavy from limbs.
reaching out toward the sky's ends
each fuzzy, tart morsel invites
a tongue to taste its sweet delights.
Beetles nest between waxen leaves
guarding their bounty from thieves
like me, reaching to steal
a bit of their delicious meal.
