Alphonso mangoes in a box surrounded by straw.Image via Wikipedia


I bought three mangoes today.
Oval, almost round
plump and heavy
like a mother's breast.

Their smooth
dark yellow reddish skin
and the electric orange flesh

so sweet
almost like first love's kisses.

One of my favorite things about living in California were mangoes.

My man is a California surfer, with a love for mangoes. Many evenings we sit in our courtyerd, snacking on cantelopes and mangoes and yes, mangoes always remind me of his kisses!

Hello Ramona!

I love Mangoes! In a year we are moving to Puerto Rico and the town where I live is called the Mangoes Town since there are Mangoes EVERYWHRE! you can stop in the streets and reach them from the trees! I bet people from there are sick of them, but me... I will love them! :)
