A robust cherry skin
Stretches snug around
Miniscule golden seeds.
An orb of serenity
Disguised in a color of passion.
Liquid scarlet oozes
From the deep indentations,
An epitaph for the sumptuous fruit.

Amazing! So much in so little - I love it. Reading this, I literally could imagine a tomato being sliced open. Comical yet impeccable, this poem deserves recognition. Great job.
