Wednesday pondering – on apples
Last night I woke up for a few seconds and I said to myself “tomorrow’s pondering must be about apples”. Then I fell asleep again, and I have no idea why this pondering was supposed to be about that topic. But since I learned to trust my instinct (even when I’m sleeping) here I am now, talking about this, in a different manner than the usual:
The fruit of fall, as many name it so,
no matter if it’s yellow, green or red,
if sweet or sourish, small or big, y’all know
that many tales about it have been said.
Forbidden in the Eden’s garden, craved
by Eve and Adam, causing their decay,
the apple’s name has been since then engraved
in myths like some insidious cliché.
We find it in the Hesperides’ tree,
and due to one the Trojan war was stirred;
swift Atalanta lost herself for three,
while Snow White, Wilhelm Tell and others erred.
It fell on Newton’s head (again, “the fall”) –
but it is that of Jobs that “rules them all”.
And that, my dears, would be a VERY brief and supposedly funny look through the apple’s history :).
