Apple tree


Memories of my boy climbing

And blackbirds courting

Hidden in your lush green leaves.

Blossom, promising fruit

And shade from summer’s heat.

You will return, I know

As winter’s grip loosens

And spring whispers

Through your naked branches.

‘Not long now my friend,

Until you are woken’.

Writing along with prompt-a-day over at write alm; today’s promt is ‘return’.

I found this beautiful poem about an apple tree, so thought I would share this too.
