orchard

to walk amid the aisles
cathedral crispness
a ladder
branches with baubles
red and reddening
green and yellowing
beckoning bites
to reach up Edenward
Macouns Cortlands
Honey Crisps Macintoshes
Galas of Galas
sampling the goods
bursting with appleness
stepping amid rot
mushy decadence
ripe for the picking
how can this be
reach even
overreach
arch
blessed fruit
of the womb of this golden Saturday
the miracle of the moment
now is the time
see
grab
bite
taste
chew
swallow
smile
sigh
amid the boughs
