By the railroad station grows a an apple tree with small apples growing on it. These apples are called “Chinese” (in feminine form). They always caught my attention and sparked interest in me. Walking around the station, looking at the apple tree, i painted a picture in my head of a siren bird sitting on the tree and indulging in the apples.
With its large claws, it grabbed an apple and bit into it. Here we meet the idea of this bird and feel it’s emotions and passion towards eating this fruit. We feel envy towards the bird due to the peace and satisfaction it is feeling, which is hard for us humans to experience.
The piece “Chinese” has a different meaning than “Paradise Apples”.
