In early July, I came upon Mr. X relaxing languidly in a flower strewn meadow surrounded by trees eating a watermelon. Always the gentleman, he offered me a vibrantly sweet piece of this summer fruit. As we devoured it he told me how he bought it from a watermelon seller that told him tales of the power of watermelon seeds...
She told him that one day the two lovers sat about eating watermelon to their hearts content, carelessly, spitting the seeds of the watermelon...all about... in the flowers and the bush, weeds and undergrowth... east and west, north and south... There were so many seeds that they lost count and didn't see the lone black seed that landed in a bird's nest nestled in a giant oak tree.
The seed lay barren in this tree all through the winter... but in the spring it sprouted first as a vine and then as a flower. In no time at all, a giant watermelon appeared in the tree and became the home of a nesting mother bird...
Several weeks later, the lovers returning to their enchanted meadow heard scratching, picking, pecking sounds coming from within the watermelon...and low and behold a feathered head soon broke free.... a giant baby bird weighing more than 100 pounds.... red and green from head to toe with seed like watermelon eyes much like the eyes of the naughty watermelon seller.... Baby birds are always hungry... and this one had a rapacious appetite ---needless to say, the lovers were never heard from or seen again.........
So, the Naughty Watermelon Seller told Mr. X to be sure to enjoy the watermelon with his love and chided him to be careful where they spit the seeds because... no one knows what will emerge next from the magical watermelon seeds!
