Pin It

A Poem by P 

If I had a stone, I'd turn it into an apple.

If I had an apple, I'd slice it in half.

If I had two halves of an apple, I'd enter the space between.

If I was between two halves of an apple, I'd take a seed from either half.

If I had two seeds of an apple, I'd plant them in soil, add water, sun, and care.

If I had planted two seeds of an apple, I'd grow me a tree full of apples.

If I had a tree full of apples, I'd take one and place it in your hands.

If I had given you an apple, then, maybe, you'd be happy.

If you were happy, I would be too.
