As big as a tennis ball

But red as a rose

Wait for it to fall

From the tree where it grows.

I have an apple and you have two.
You gave me an apple,
and now that I have two.
I ate one apple
and gave you one.
Now, I don't have any
and you don't have too.

We're all like fallen apples
Feb 4

We're all like fallen apples
that are bruised to the touch
some tumbled from great heights
and smashed on the ground
others took longer to ripe
and others are more round
some are sweet
and some are sour
some are blooming this very hour
I know apples that have holes
bites were taken
and they're broken to the core
some apples are rotten
and some apples are not
but just like us
some apples are in between
and I'd eat them anyway

just like the apple,
all things brown
more quickly as
you approach

Candy-apple red,
Adam and Eve in bed,
Not listening to God
Or the wolf in their head;
‘You can’t keep the doctor away’
Is what the witch said -
Snow’s only white
Til the heart’s been bled.

Should my child
Steal an apple
From the orchard,
I wouldn't throw
Her out.
That would be a sin.
The consequences
Could be life altering,
World altering
In certain circumstances.
Here I have a teachable moment.
Rejection is the milk of pride.

Poverty and no health insurance coverage keeps the doctor away ~
apples have nothing to do with it.
