Change and the apple, birthing

Does the flower miss her petals
when they drop to the ground
and the belly that remains
begins to swell?
And when her skin
begins to stretch and thin,
does it ache, the taut pull
screaming like a muscle?
And the blush
that flows over the cheeks;
the sharp split of separation,
once ripe --
does she resist, or rejoice?
