Apple Tree Graveyard


in the old graveyard
next to the church
has an apple tree
dropping her apples
for bees
for deer
amazing
the apples provide
nourishment
provide help
in a place so morbid
yet the apples keep
pushing on
they refuse to be
defeated
not like man
they never give up
they have no will
they don't make mistakes
they are told what to do
by Mother Nature
they amaze even
the sunsets
that take a break
and the snow ruffles
the feathers of the apples
but they don't back down
they fall down
they nourish other life forms
amazing apples
in the old graveyard
like Adam and Eve
stopped sinning
