Skin like a lunar landscape,
Glowing like a sun,
A stalk, as brown as a mushroom,
Hangs on to the tree,
An umbilical cord, providing life.
The sweet smell spreading
As the orange sways in the breeze.
Inside a new world is revealed
With pips rising like a thunderous rocket,
Up to space.
It's juicy aroma comes from the secrets below,
The juice runs down like an erupting volcano,
It's sour taste shooting up my nose.
