apple seeds

I miss the flavor of you
at dawn

coming to me in dreams that fill my mind
with worried images

and times, fatigued

learning more from apple seeds
I lean into the love that sits atop the mountain

and the valleys deep
where love lingers in the shadows

and in every crack and crevice of this heart
pumping crimson-colored heat

through me, like the ocean

this love
I will forever keep

    That was such a lovely fuzzy feeling overcome me, thinking about the flavour of the apple, green or blushed cheek red,
    Its squishy flesh ideal for baked tarts….lol…sprinkled with cinnamon.

    Splendid ode to the simple apple tree and her mesmerizing seeds.
    I just love the thought that the scent of the apple has a calming effect on the mind
    And how beautifully you honour this everyday fruit, on the mountaintops or below in the valleys.

    You are such a great poet picker of fruits.
    Splendid poetry Jeff♥♥, bless your heart.

    Contemplation at its best. A lovely scenery which evokes deep feelings buried within. Love is never exhausted or depleted. It transforms itself and stays alive. How we nourish it is the key to living a beautiful life. 🙂

    Marvelous poetry, Jeff (as always). The imagery is so strident. Apple trees lend themselves to poetry so willingly. This is a superb piece of writing, good sir! 🙂
