The Ruby Apple

Source



she plucked the ruby apple


from the enticing apple tree...


took a great big bite before


the worm had time to flee...


mmm mmm delicious!

Oh dear - memories return. Worms do not taste good. Cute, short and sweet! I'm smiling and that is worth a whole lot!

The Old worm in the apple, At least she got her protein for the day with that worm.

God Bless

Rouillie, thanks so much for stopping by...yes this is a bit of a strange one...but then, the place from which it came can be a bit strange at times too...all in fun!

Pixienot, a smile is a wonderful gift indeed! I am glad this bad memory at least did that! Thanks!

Vietnamvet...there is much to be said for "Protein" in whatever form it comes! lolololI found some ants in my cerial one day and me mum's response was,"aww, hun, thats just extra protein!" Thanks!

No_Clue - A good surprise and it was found in a good poem. Enjoyed it and, for that, I thank you.

No more eating fruit in the dark for me. This was a sweet little rhyme with a distasteful amen.

attemptedhumour, yes, you are right...eating fruit in the dark is risky business indeed! although, the eater of the ruby apple, did so in broad daylight...she was just Hungry! lol...thanks for the read and lovely comment!
