"The best way to move others, is to be moved ourselves;
words that come from the heart are most likely to reach the heart."

Apples To Oranges by Kathie Anderson

The day was dismal as
you were seated beside me.
It rained buckets of dreams.
A couple of ripe apples, I suspected;
others imagined a sunny day in June.

It took some time to gather
fruitful thoughts, but words sprang
forth like tender leaves.
The first taste was sweet enough,
but something unfamiliar lingered.

Clocks ticked in silence as our awkward dance continued; keeping time to separate tunes, the lyrics somehow sour.

Stepping back to look again
revealed the consciously hidden truth.  Both ripe, yet different and hopelessly incomparable.
