Pink lemonade paints
sugared fondant to bloom on
nature’s birthday cake

Lured into heavens
by cocoa jasmine citrus
on balmy evenings

Road Crossing Rooster

A lover boy known
for his serenades at dawn
darts across my road

Gelled back James Dean in
amber ebonied feathers
turning heads down streets

Silly bonus haiku:

Pineapple Princess
won the Palm Tree Pageant.
Now she’s Coconut Queen
