Apple abacus

The ancient eavesdropper

1-apple-abacusFruit trees
swing side
to side in
the breeze โ€”
their apples
oscillating
like beads
on a giant
abacus โ€”
counting
the harvest.

    Creates such an image in my mind’s eye! Love it!

  3. Just love this – such vivid imagery! Nice! K

  4. Inviting image … takes me back to growing up in a yard full of apple trees … the abacus metaphor likewise intrigues … makes the image “move”.

    • Thank you for your kind words! And thank you for sharing your wonderful childhood memories! My poetry fosters a sense of place and provides a springboard for further thought. I humbly offer my interpretation of this moment & give all the credit to Nature, my muse & inspiration. Have a fantastic Sunday, my friend!
      Cheers,
      Tyler
