The Orange

Rating: 4.3
At lunchtime I bought a huge orange—
The size of it made us all laugh.
I peeled it and shared it with Robert and Dave—
They got quarters and I had a half.

And that orange, it made me so happy,
As ordinary things often do
Just lately. The shopping. A walk in the park.
This is peace and contentment. It's new.
The rest of the day was quite easy.

I love it! Simplicity and truthfulness wrapped up in an orange. I also love Differences of Opinion by Wendy Cope - it's one of my favourites.
