    I don't think it was an apple ~

    but it must have been so seductive
    so beautiful to look upon
    so hard to resist the
    natural yearnings
    to savor its delicate juices

    & the smooth, spine-tingling
    serpentine sounds of
    the tempter...
    like the most melodious
    baritone
    were much too sensual
    far too pleasureable
    to the ear
    no way possible
    a feminine soul
    would not draw near

    burning with hunger
    for just a taste

    ...no it wasn't an apple

    & God saw fit
    to remove this sumptuous
    tree of the knowledge of
    good & evil from the earth
    and took it back to Heaven...

    but we still have the cravings ...

    Our mouths still water for just a taste
    Of things remembered
    But left in haste

    Weave your Magic Sista Poet!!
