Apple Trees

In fall they leave our lives
Like aged parents given over the
Care of others.


In winter they stand back
Like dormant dreams and
Let us pass.


In spring they reach
Like giant nerves to touch
A rising sun.


In summer they flourish
Like families and yield
The most exquisite truth
Of hardwood and seed.
