Golden One

A tribute to bananas

"Golden Ones" created by the author using NightCafe Creator.

Oh luscious golden berry

You give so much to so many

You’re the snack we trust

When we leave home in a rush

You don’t require containers or baggies

You even add creaminess to smoothies

But you’re not just there for texture or flavor

You also do our bodies a favor

You give us fiber and potassium

Even vitamins C and B6, before you’re done

Thank you so much for all that you do

Beautiful banana, we love you!

Thank you for reading! This poem was written in response to a challenge by Rick Henry in the wonderfully supportive Vocal + Assist Facebook group.
