Temptation

(Today's poem is in response to prompt 3 from the site of Bud the Teacher. He's posting a poetry prompt every day in April. Today's prompt was an image of an apple. I think I was also influenced by having read Hades by George O'Connor this week. Welcome to Poetry Month!) 


Temptation

What is it about a 
gleaming scarlet fruit that
entices,
tempts,
lures 
the innocent?

A bite for knowledge
Six seeds for love

Shades of scarlet. 
No longer simply black and white. 
The boundaries 
of childhood
confine us no longer. 

A bite for knowledge
Six seeds for love
