Poem Nine of Thirty

Apple Blooms

Infant buds, then blooms serve well
for trees to have their fling.
They promise bites of sweet delight
but first our noses sing
with this bouquet from spring.

Fruits arrive in sunny June
begin their waxing rise.
We spend the summer watching
and celebrate the prize
dropped under September skies.

  1. Just delightful, Linda. I love the smell of apple blossoms, then seeing the fruit appear and finally eating them in late summer/Fall. I like the ideas of trees having a fling with the blooms.

    1. Thanks again! I stood within those branches, just a bit of a walk from my house, and breathed in, wonderful. I had to write about it.

  2. Love your apple blooms against the blue sky. I'm not familiar with the smell of apple blooms, but your poem makes me want to find an apple tree!

  3. I'm enjoying this series of small poems, Linda. Our pear trees were budding when the last snow hit -- we're waiting to see whether their leaves will develop.
