Apple Pi



                                        My husband likes it cold. I prefer it warm to hot
                                    moist, tart and gooey. The crisp of the flesh as I sink 
                                my      teeth down                      in. Savoring 
                                           the flaky                         delicate crust.
                                           I inhale the                      ripe, sweet 
                                           odor a hint                      of nutmeg?
                                           cinnamon?                       Carefully
                                           blow, it may                     burn my 
                                           mouth. And                      yet, the pain
                                           would be                          worth it. I 
                                           consume the                     Pink Ladies
                                           with sweet                        whipped cream               &
                                           a bit of cheese                  sometimes feta                or
                                           maybe some                     cheddar. There               is a 
                                           sweet perfection                in this moment.              As I 
                                           once again                        surrender to homemade apple pie!

Brian at dVerse made an interesting observation; that we write appealing to our sense of sight. He asked us to write to our other senses. Since this year all of March is Pi month, and tomorrow is Pi day (3.14) I thought it an excellent opportunity to write about one of my favorite food groups. Y'all know the four food groups? Pie, Sweet tea, Fried Things, and Chocolate. I did cheat a bit, though, but I wanted to see if I could write in this shape. Yay! If you aren't finding me through the dVerse linky, then why not pop on over and check out some of the other awesome submissions. (Anna's is scary and sad...I highly recommend it!)

  1. You know, I just had a conversation with someone about cheese on apple pie. I've never tried it! Pink Ladies I love though. And this poem. So neat the idea of pi and that you've incorporated that into the shape.

    1. Hi Linda! Welcome to the lasagna. Pink ladies are wonderful apples. They don't seem to bake up as crisp as Granny Smiths, but so very yummy. Cheese is very nice with apple pie. A lot of people prefer cheddar, but I also love a little feta. Thank you for the visit!

    1. Hey Brian! That's pretty cool, I close my eyes too and didn't even think about that while writing this. Hey, I was more on prompt than I thought! :)

    1. Hi Laurie! I think I need to make another one soon. I had originally inserted a picture of an apple pie with a Pi cutout in the crust. Then I thought it would be fun to write the poem in the shape of pie and used the picture as a guide. Basically, I just wrote and used the space bar... a lot.

  12. I find the notion of Pi Day intriguing. Along with the pie punning that goes on. I like your creation here.
