Hello, and welcome to OctPoWriMo, Day Three!
This year, I intend to follow all the prompts, and get the joy of discovery…
I hope you’ll stop by, settle in, and find a little bit of magic here!
Today’s poetry type is tri-fall, and the word prompts were:
As difficult as yesterday’s poem was, today’s poem was a joy -to write, and to live. It didn’t hurt that the kids and I decided to go apple picking…from pain comes wisdom, and from sorrow comes new appreciation of joy…
I’ll let the poem and the images say the rest!
In the Apple Orchard
We head out into air
Crisp and clear
The promise of branches laden
With the treasures they bear
Far and near
A mother, son, and a maiden
Nature’s candy so sweet
Gold green red
Indulgence nature’s treasure quest
To find sun-sugared treat
Our bags are full; we take a rest
Sustained by fertile Earth
Silly snapshots, sips of water
Return walk filled with mirth
Fulfillment, with son and daughter.
