There are green ones.
There are yellow.
There are red ones
ripe and mellow.

Heavy and many
dangling in bunches.
The green ones are tasty
but firm so they crunches.

Poor weak stems
are almost breaking.
We need to support them
to save them from aching.

Tie them down gently
with cotton strips.
Tight and careful
to the supporting sticks.

Tomatoes so many
in shapes and in sizes.
We cook them, we bake them
we cut them in slices.

So sweet and so warm
kissed by the sun.
Deliscious and juicy
sliced on a bread bun.

With extra virgin olive oil
some salt and pepper.
I don't think a tomato
could taste any better.
