Of Covid, Cliches, And Conumdrums

This is my essay that was just published in Poetic Sun.

Going Bananas!

We have quite a flourishing banana grove in our Hawaii garden. We get four or more crops a year. A new flower appeared last week, doing its thing! When its petals drop off, the banana flowerlets are revealed. I read that the purple petals of the large flower are edible. The bananas will develop slowly. It would be great if they were ripe by December when our kids come to visit, but I doubt it.
