In The Orchard

Two years ago I planted a number of apple trees. During this last winter, a strong wind snapped off the top off one of the trees. This spring I noticed new growth coming from that broken sapling, just above the hybrid’s graft.

Damaged apple tree
Buds above the grower’s graft
Begins life again

Life gives some a second chance
When the sapling’s roots are strong

Calloused hands tinker
on tumbled and twisted pots
strike a cheerful tune

share a simple melody
give pleasure for those at work
