I like to think of fantastical things;
perhaps a lantern made of mango peel!
Imagine the squishiness of it
and the wet noises it would make when you shook it.
Oh! And the light filtered through the
dripping stickness of the skin
and the lumpy bits of ripe, orange flesh
that haven't been pared off quite as well as the rest.
NaPoWriMo - Day Twelve.

Okay, so the prompt on the napowrimo website was to get a poem in a foreign language, translate it homo-phonically into English and see what ideas you came up with. I came up with some dribble about a mango-peel lantern, and, well, yeah.
