The Apple

an apple sits on a table
it sits there in stillness
how it is viewed and perceived
is in the mind of the beholder

one may see a beautiful object
red with streaks of gold where light
shines softly off its smooth skin
a work of art pleasant to the eye

one may see the meat of the fruit
sweet and crisp, filled with juice
just waiting to be enjoyed and savored
as food and a source of nourishment

one may see deep into its core
where lies its seed, waiting there to
give new life and perpetuate its kind
as nature has equipped it to do

one may see the imperfection of a
small bruise and deem it unfit of
its true value and pass it by as
not worthy of a second glance

one may see it in its entirety
appreciating it in all its splendor
as a unique creation with all its
intricacies and delight in its wonder

an apple sits on a table
being what it is, an apple
it is our observations and judgments
in life that make us, who we are

The Apple
