Sitting in an old friend’s back yard, 
Snacking on homegrown cherry tomatoes —
 Is there anything sweeter 
 On a late summer’s afternoon? 
Looking at these two on the vine, 
I find myself thinking 
We’re not just aging; we’re ripening — 
Growing from a dull, mottled youth 
To a ripe, juicy, sweet and luscious perfection! 
Life is good.
