New poems fall
like apples
from a tree,
like berries
from a vine,
like buzzing
from a bee.

Mostly I dropp them,
‘cos there’s no keyboard handy.

I love this. It made me smile. I am sorry that you lose so many, not having a keyboard handy, though. Perhaps you could carry a pen and notebook with you for emergencies! Smiles. Love Diana

I just noticed your title and understood it! How funny! I'm a little slow on the uptake, lol. I thought of Poe (Edgar Allan) and tree, I never saw Po-e-tree, lol

a great little poem, with images that catch all the senses and a little wit sprinkled on them.
