Ode to a Mango

Sweet, succulent fruit of the tropics!
Where have you hidden these last two decades?
You are the Peach of Asia,
Your rainbow skin holds a treasure
Flavorful and fresh
Rich and rejuvenating
My tongue does not tire of your tastiness.
You are delightful in all forms, at any time –
Juice, shake, salsa, sorbet
and cheesecake and short cake and tarts.
Papayas and dragonfruit do not rival you.
Here, you are ripe and abundant.
Home, a rare delicacy.
I will enjoy your pleasures.
