Thank you, Apple & Almonds


What satisfactions in simple sufficiency
Since the surfeit of this season's seasonings -
Superabundance of cinnamon, savory,
Sweeties and salties all sizzling and sparkling -
But ah! apple (one) and almonds (ten)
An easy handful raw, unsalted and unadorned
Nutty bite balancing bursting bite of fruit
Tantalizing tasty, tangy-sweet, crisply tart -
Simply sumptuous, sensuously simple,
I sing you soaringly in shadow and sharp sun!

I've avoided reading because I knew it was coming to an end . . . but I'm okay with it now. Just so ya know.

Lovely apples and almonds. Lovely day. Happy New Year and good writing to you.
