Poetry: The Apple

Poetry: The Apple 🍎

by Liam

I have read ten thousand pages

Learned the scriptures and memorized the

Speeches of the

Wise, old and true

Yet you over there

Watch the silence of air

Unfold in patterns

Untold in beauty

This transmigration of thoughts pure fruit

Plucked from the tree of Love

It’s gentle branches embracing my mind

Its soft leaves giving shadow to my rest

It’s roots anchoring my life in the reality of today

Sing, while I cry in joy

Thankful for this sweet taste of life.
