#NaPoWriMo day 15

Happy half way mark! Feels good! 🙂 

Red skin stretched taut over crisp cream
Two hearts embedded with black eyes gleam. 

Cored and halved to share
each heart is now laid bare. 

In the shade of the apple tree
once sat my love and me. 

  I have always loved old folk tales of men and women sharing an apple. I still get a flush of love and gratitude when my love goes to halve some food for us … Especially anything with chocolate!

Thanks for the halfway prompt napowrimo.net !
