“A” Fruit(y) Introduction




I come
from the
land of velvet apples 

crunching words
sweeter than 
Apple cinnamon
With a bit
Of lust-laced
Arabian coffee

Some days,
I feel like a
prickly pear


Sweet tooth,
creamy avocado
delights me
more than
Dark chocolates

I dream of being
Star fruit

But I am happy
Being an apple
Of someone’s eye




Author's Note:   For Poets United:  The Thursday Think Tank #62 - The 3rd Letter of Your First Name. I am writing about the letter "A" which is the third letter of my real name, and my alias, Heaven.

  4. Heaven, this was... heaven! The windup, being the Apple of someone's eye, truly the best kind of love. Mine is within the trio of poems I posted, the "Y" poem (for Amy):
