Hidden in sweet flesh
A hard stone
which is not a stone
because
hidden in the stone
A seed
Zygote for a future tree
Disguised by a seductive present
Of sweet and juicy flesh
And this is just to say
It isn’t just a stone,
You should plant it
Not throw it away

for the OctPoWriMo prompt of 10/26/19 on “secrets”. With apologies to William Carlos Williams

But the repetition aspect was definitely on my mind when I was crafting it.
