NaPoWriMo 2020 – Day 24: In Praise of a Banana

The NaPoWriMo prompt for Day 24 is to write about a particular fruit, describing it as closely as possible. Here goes, for the delights of a banana.

***
Nothing delights
a tired tongue
on a hot summer day
like a banana,
the rush of sugar
it gifts to the blood
like salve on burnt skin.
Joy hides beneath its skin
and in each bite salvation.
