The Perfect Apple

Written for:  The Sunday Muse #25

The perfect apple
begged protection
from ice storms,
and wicked winds
of winter.  Two
artists, fans of 
apples, encased
the perfect apple
in a snow globe
 made of branches 
and crystal. 
It glowed in winter
moonlight, keeping
its rosy color
in tact until
spring edged winter
out of the season.

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.
