Apple Tree Diary, August 14th

New day dawns all washed and shining;


Showy rain diamonds cling to leafy fingers


betrothed to a glorious sun for the day.


Dark memory of night’s past storm


evaporates in blinding light.


Stormy fear slips away.


Hope returns.





Only the fearsome red squirrel in the tree today.


I dare not breach her manic preoccupation with a greeting.
