Our Soul's Gestation

by Alexa Shelby

Each vessel is an apple:

Round, annular and beaming
exuding empathy, caliber.

Full to the brim, to the core
unsure of how to grow.

Only anticipating the ceaseless picking -
Imagine such an aimless existence!

Whole and uncorrupted,
permanently cherished;

And momentarily
by all children.
