Juice of Life
Plug in the juice maker,
Stainless steel and black-cut blades,
Is today the day for a beautiful puree?
Or simply, to blend?
In go the deep-red carrots,
With skins of bright orange as vivid as the sun,
I add alluring apples, as juicy as a sweet,
Their fragrance fills the air,
It’s time to get creative!
Like each day,
No matter what,
Come what may,
The blender is made to blend,
And blend it does- I do,
All the experiences, I take them in,
Just as the blender accepts its food to mix,
As robust as can be,
No ingredient is the same,
Each one unique in taste and texture,
Yet I take them all in,
Mixing them until they become one,
I take in, process, and react
It takes in, mixes, and produces
So are the blender and I not alike?
Both machines of sorts,
Processing and blending,
Taking the world in our stride.
