Prompt–Thursday, August 25
I’m taking a media publication and design course this semester. The text is “The Non-Designers Design Book” by Robin Williams and one of the examples had a list of several items. It was called “The Rules of Life” and the one that stood out to me was “Don’t let the seeds stop you from enjoyin’ the watermelon.”
So use the watermelon or make your own list. Mine is below.
Grandpa always sat on the porch
with his hands dripping with juice
from the watermelon on his lap.
“Son,” he would say in his accent
of generations past, “Don’t let
the seeds stop you from enjoyin’
the watermelon. They make sure
there’s watermelon for the future.”
I collected the seeds from the grass
and learned to grow Grandpa’s
favorite summer treat.
