Orchard

It’s not all heavy

It’s not all lost.

There is beauty to be had

joy begging to be taken

ripe fruit hanging from the tree

waiting to be enjoyed

to drip down your chin

sweetness a reminder

of the bliss that awaits

if you just reach out

and pluck it from the swaying branch.

Keep your talk of rotted trunks

and greedy insects

and the risky climbing of trees

I’ll be reaching through the leaves

finding sweetness in the orchard

that waits for me.
