Little Green Apples

Under a dappled sky
the smell of promising rain
permeates jaded thoughts
on the little mound of soil
under the apple tree

The wings of a parakeet
agitate the leaden air
stirring the branches
above the little parasol 
of emerald shade

There forbidden fruit
coyly hide beneath 
green leaves, waiting
patiently to harvest
their rosy blushes
from the gentle kisses
of the summer sun

  9. So sedate!

    Would love to wait on that mound of soil for that forbidden fruit with emerald green jade thoughts but patience is not my harvest and kisses not so gentle.

    Besos.

    1. Do not wait on that mound of soil (it is a little grave) :) Ah, the temperament of a poet I see. But perhaps then the apples would blush more so if the kisses we less gentle! :¬D xxx
