so many kinds of apples

with 6 comments


October 24, 2016 ‘yellow transparent’ Jane Tims


orchard outing


wooden bushel baskets

of laughter, delirious tumble down

the avenue of trees, shadows ripple

among the dapples, Cortlands tied

with scarlet ribbons




my son grown tall

on his father’s shoulders

stretches to pick the McIntosh

with the reddest shine

small hand

barely able

to grip the apple
