Apple Tree.

Standing in the orchard, not

overly tall yet wide,

bowing branches

flowing down to wash across

the tumbled grass.

Offering with silent pride

the bounty that was hers.

Joyously cascading and twinkling

at the sun, her fruits

as rich and red as rubies

upon an emerald cloak.

I have two trees that I am

I have two trees that I am really looking forward to becoming much as you described. One is half way there : )  Maybe chives instead of grass, but otherwise - on their way.

Sadly this isn’t my tree it’s

Sadly this isn’t my tree it’s in the orchard of my daughters home,

they have several apple, pear and damson.

I am somewhat envious. Thank you for reading. Good luck with 

your trees :-) Sue.

maybe. I have great sun! Nice to have an orchard. A tree tribute, and acknowledgment. Very outside :D
