Prunes

Mouldering
jet in a jar
miraculous almost
metamorphosed from petalled white
cascades of April showers
heated in halcyon hours
lazy fat matronly baskers
swell sponge-like into summer drops
rotund and diamanté purple
tested on waspish tongues
beads of suspended animation
outlasting even winter
