Sunday Writing Prompt and Sunday Photo Fiction – Apple and theme park

The strangest thing happened as I

Went into the theme park and how

I think that’s an apple up there

In the middle of the square

Was it sent as spy just now?

Deep sand as well as rain to dry

Chain of events stay, no why

Glass and seeds in the net allow

What to do so I will prepare

Apple in the middle I swear

As holy as a sacred cow

I wonder and began to cry

No running or exercise now

As an excuse for me somehow*
