Fall Crispness

Red skin speckled with green

reflects the light

as my hand

curves around the apple.

I raise it towards my lips.

Open my mouth.

My top teeth break through the skin first-


My bottom teeth follow.

They slide together through the pulp

pulling it from the core.

Sweet juice dribbles

over my tongue

as my jaw releases it

with each chew.

A swallow of crisp, fall freshness.

It is my favorite season in Upstate New York- Fall. With that, comes the abundance of apples just picked from the tree. This is one of the pure pleasures of this season. I decided to take a moment and be truly mindful while delighting in an apple I just picked.
