Apple abacus

swing side
to side in
the breeze —
their apples
oscillating
like beads
on a giant
abacus —
counting
the harvest.

    I really like this one. We’ve been counting our apples too and so have the bears. Just waiting till they are perfectly ripe, then it’s a race to see who gets there first.

    • Thank you kindly, my friend! I’m glad you enjoyed my poem πŸ™‚ I’m always looking for a new way to represent life, beauty and Nature. My wife was picking apples in the orchard and I saw the trees swaying to and fro, their laden boughs clicking like beads on an abacus. After that, everything just fell into place, or in this case, it just β€˜clicked.’ I hope you have a wonderful Friday and weekend!
      Cheers,
