Magpie 22

                                               Willow at http://magpietales.blogspot.com/
                                                       hosts a weekly writing prompt
                                       
                                          using the below photo, write a vignette or poem


 Five nearly ripe tomatoes on the vine
I am tempted to pick one and bite into it
imagining the sweetness dripping over my lips
as I take bite after bite 
devouring  it like a good man

;)
