A-Z April 2013 Challenge: Citrus Fruits


This is part of the April 2013 A-Z Challenge.  Enjoy!



I long for summertime to come so I can taste the tangy citrus fruits sold in the fruit market store.  Everything is fresh and the colors so bright, I just want to devour every single sweet yielding reward.  I long for busy streets with the haze emanating from the asphalt.  I long for the children playing Double Dutch jumprope and stickball on the block.  I long for the cool spray of the fire hydrant to caress my face.  I long for the blazing Spanish music blaring from the backs of fast cars.  I long for summer.  Citrus fruit and summer.
