Seasonal Pie
Best tasted in season, no?
Joy is in tasting

-- Doc


Philosophy is
Our attempt to reason why
We all love the pie

Do not reason why
Ours is but to eat the pie
When gone, do not cry

Oh circle of life
Many layered crust surrounds
Deep meaning within

Behold apple pie
Flaky warm and star-spangled
Slice of pure freedom

In your own abode
May pie always be present
And be a la mode

Kitchen samurai
Create your own rising sun
Round, red, cherry pie

-- Pie Plato

Then comes a huge, happy smile

Before going in the sun.

To inspire you: 

O, circle of joy!
     Fall, winter, summer and spring
         You always delight!

Seven pies repose.
    Eyes explore; how to decide?
       Where’s the whipped cream, Mom?

Awaiting spring thaw:
    Heaped atop a cherry pie
        Ice cream slowly melts.
