Patchwork light streams between limbs
the orchard trees weighty with fruit
bow in submission, touch the ground
that is when I first laid eyes on you
as you reached for the bunch that grew
closest to the sun, crimson red, full and ripe
wine coloured days, apples, cherries
strawberries picked tenderly, I imagined you
cradling my face, I, the strawberry
not to bruise or spoil
yet I did not exist, the weeks under the sun
as I toiled within arms reach, sheltering my gaze
beneath my hat of straw
you had said “hello”, you had smiled, more than once
did I misconstrue again?
summer ended, the picking done, you went away
and I watch the rain strike the barren trees
the trees once full of red
fingertips paint the foggy glass
and I cry crimson tears
My 500th post. I thank each and everyone of you for supporting and reading what I write.
Happy half century blog post *smiles*

Summer, it came again … and you were picked I think …

Ok Yoda – thank you darling 🙂
🙂 lol It will be in the 90’s F here and I did two loads of laundry before 7 am that I have to hang out then the garden club was given so many plants I ran out of pots so they must get into the ground here at my home though I hurt so bad but 2 days with legs up blogging will help 🙂
slow down lovely before your burst! Yes blog and put your feet up now – then it’s only your hands that will tire. xx
I knew it would be too hot for all those plants to survive so JT and I hauled them up the hill in truck watered them in good and they will make my yard pretty till the club finds a buyer 🙂
Do you do Facebook?
Hard worker you are – yes I am but I rarely go on, just for quick conversations usually 🙂
