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

I hear

movement in the night
untouchable human form
pebbles tossed in pond

I feel

focused energy
light bound in an earthly form
beats within a song

I see

glimpse of pure beauty
that exist on natures edge
-meteors swift flight
