For a Friday finish, I checked out the prompt at Imaginary Garden With Real Toads.
The topic of the day was one that I hadn’t thought about for a long time–pet peeves.
There are those little things that turn into annoyances, not so logical maybe but nevertheless, bothersome. Seems like we all have one or two or more of them.
This is one that came to mind for a poem.
Cautionary Note on Eating Apples
Apples are my favourite fruit–
Northern spy apples
are welcomed by me.
Just please do not crunch that morsel so round
Unless we are surrounded by other sounds
To drown out the crunch of that crisp apple munch!

Written for Prompt at Imaginary Garden with Real Toads prompt Mary’s Mixed Bag Pet Peeves
This poem might explain why I like apple desserts so much–apple pie, apple crisp, applesauce–with lots of cinnamon, my favourite spice!
Have a great weekend, All!:)
