Tinker Posted October 23, 2018 Share Posted October 23, 2018 An Apple a Day One bite and the crunch is tart and sweet. The taste of earth and sky, sweetened by the sun and the waters of life. Juice escapes to moisten my lips and from the orb sticky elixir drips onto my palm to be licked off later. Warmed by the sun and snatched from a flexible limb, how many before me have savored the glory of the apple? Some believe, Eve was first to taste, tempted by a serpent. Norse gods credited their immortality to the fruit. Ancients cultivated orchards grafting to ensure consistency. Fruit of knowledge past and future. Delicate, pink blossoms herald Spring and baskets of plump red and green apples punctuate Fall harvest to be devoured raw, baked, stewed, candied or floating in a tub. You know what they say, "An apple a day" Yummy. ~~Judi Van GorderFootnote: Quote ~~ © ~~ Poems by Judi Van Gorder ~~ For permission to use this work you can write to Tinker1111@icloud.com Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
