WALKABOUTSVERSE 24 OF 230

Poem 24 of 230:  THROUGH SOUTH-EAST ASIA

A highlight of South-East Asia -
    As with other tropical lands -
Is the abundance of fresh fruits,
    At cutting which some have deft hands.

And, from these fruits, I’d often choose -
    To cool down from tropical heat -
A freshly prepared coconut:
    Chopped to drink; lining scooped to eat.
