Daily Prompt: Imagine eating lemons

A sour,  bitter taste that wells up sharply

under your tongue and leaves you salivating,

Enough to make your eyes water.

But citrus cool in a coke or G&T

Cartwheels of tartness dropped in.

Lemon sorbet, sweet but refreshing

Cleaning the palette of unwanted taste.

Yet a juice, enhancing flavour,

Acid tangy extra, piquant with fish.

Zest adding texture and  sharpness to sweetness

In lemon drizzle cake; scrumptious.

Sharp tanginess in morning tea;

a yellow, lemon-fresh scent.

A  flavorful fruit; awaiting your passion.
