Another Cherry


Another Cherry
18x6"
Oil
$100
DPW $80

Another cherry from the nearly empty summer box.

Is it as red as the wine-red sea?
Or as red as the cheeks of my beamish boy?

Is it the cherry my mother gave me?
"Don't swallow the seed!" she warned.

It is the cherry I have right now,
As bright  and pretty as a cherry can be,
With its stem reaching over far for something desired
And upward for the thing unattained.

  2. The stem pointing up so completes the composition.
