OctPoWriMo Day 3: In the Apple Orchard


Hello, and welcome to OctPoWriMo, Day Three!

What’s OctPoWriMo, you ask? Well, it’s a whole month of poetic creation – 31 poems in 31 days. It’s the creative baby of Morgan Dragonwillow and Julie Jordan Scott.

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:

  • sweet

  • candy

  • sugar

  • indulgence

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

Spirits fed

Our bags are full; we take a rest

Sustained by fertile Earth

Fall weather

Silly snapshots, sips of water


Return walk filled with mirth

Fulfillment, with son and daughter.

    • It’s one of my four favorites! =D

      Today, the rain came, and the wind, and my son said, “It’s a grim day out there.”

      So happy we took advantage of yesterday.

    • It was lovely, and I’ll be blogging more and sharing new pictures tomorrow, too.

      We don’t know what apples we picked, because we went where the mood took us – but we had a wonderful time, and my body has that pleasant ache that comes with getting out and doing something….and we laughed. A lot! =D

Take a chance! Type something in this box, and see what happens! =D
