Fruit Salad Days

Fruit Salad Days 
Image by Klaus Enrique Gerdes
Mango sunshine sweetness cuts through 
My cabbage styled life, 
One of normality and everyday strifes, 
Tropical salad days are but a few 
Then they occur and its whay hay hoo! 
Forget the stodge and the run of the mill,
I munch on apples till I have my fill,
A melody of fruity tropical sensations fill my being, 
All possibilities and dreams are easier for seeing. 
I return to my diet of the everyday, 
Promising to ensure variation in my lifestyle bouquet,  
The fruit's of life are such a treat, 
But one must have a life that's full and complete!
