Memories of a Peach

Apartment 7A is a long way from here,
but still, I remember her well.
Cumming, a quaint little town off of Route 400—
God must love Georgia, because
Her light shines heavenly down there.
It certainly did that morning;
heavy fog funneled through like cathedral spires,
a handful of them scattered everywhere—
in parking lots, over mountaintops, across long plains of green.
I remember often looking up, in awe, to see
a beautifully clean-and-clear-blue swimming pool
filled with giant willows of popcorn;
I remember the bliss of watching her gasp too,
parting lips being pushed into a pillow,
and that blue butterfly, spreading its wings, careening,
slowly moving back and forth over a grove of giant peaches.

Yes, I remember Georgia;
yes, I remember her well.
