Apple fresh 🍎

As she sat there on the couch
legs up on the foot stool, hair wet from a morning shower. A plate sitting on her lap carried an apple carefully cut into wedges.
She looked as fresh as the apple. The sound of her mouth, kept me hypnotized as she kept biting the apple pieces. The juices inside her mouth was tickling my mouth.
She looked at me and her eyes begun to say something but she stopped her thought because her mouth was full.
On that brief moment as she sat there eating her fresh apple, with her fresh wet hair on that fresh morning I felt that we formed the most perfect couple together.
On that very moment my heart fell in love with her again.

      yes, the apple of love. What I wouldn't give to be that apple. ; )

        Well, I dont want to be the apple because the apple was being devoured. Too much pain to be the apple. Thanks AP. I always appreciate your visit and comments.

          Yes, but wasn't the apple what brought the two together?

          You know, Malu, it is so beautiful that we can find love in everyday common things, like watching her eating an apple. There are moments when I watch my wife doing something and like a flash, the 'I love that woman' pops into my head.
          Your poem is so well written!

            Thanks Fred. I had to play as the guy here because I only had the imagination this way. I'm sure it happens all the time and my guy sometimes out of nowhere he says: oh! You look so cute doing this or that thing I'm doing at that moment. And he says: where you've been all that time that I only found you now. So, we have those cute moments too. Love is what makes our life important and each moment special. I'm happy that you love your wife so much. It is so beautiful. Keep calm and love more.
