“Pleasure is spread through the earth
In stray gifts to be claimed by whoever shall find.” — William Wordsworth
There is bounty hidden everywhere in these city streets. I love its nonchalance — grapes peeking through a rusty fence, cherries lined up in the sidewalk, pears complementing the graffiti on a street sign. The Romanian people are equally blasé. They snatch a handful of cherries from somebody else’s tree as they walk to the bus stop. Or they hopscotch effortlessly through the maze of tiny apples littering the ground after a storm. I can’t imagine taking these pictures back home, where the only fruit I see is the perfectly groomed stuff lined up on grocery store shelves. It makes me want to grab a few cherries and savor their impromptu sweetness myself.
What’s your favorite fruit? Ever seen it growing “wild”? And would you pick the cherries??
See more fruit at Beth’s on Thursday.
