Apple Accolades

Written for:  dVerse Poets Pub – Poetics:  Apple  (posted by Anmol)

How do you feel
when someone near says,
‘you are the apple
of my eye’?  Special.
You sigh at being aligned
with a red-skinned,
succulent fruit. In
The Wizard Of Oz, the
apple tree resented
anyone trying to pick
his apples, but apple
picking is popular
when Fall’s bounty
is plentiful, and trees
are yielding.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    I remember how scary the Oz trees were for me as a kid. Luckily I wasn’t scarred enough to stay away from their delicious fruit 😉
