Evening Snow

09 Nov

New England apples

In wooden bowl on table

Shadow’s eventide.


Maple Syrup waits

For the Spring.

    Nothing like a newly picked apple! A tasty apple is a wonderful symbol of autumn.

    The images of the simple life of apples and maple syrup makes me wonder what we are really need more…

    I like the serene tone of your words, ZQ! Nature is a great provider, in many ways.

    I love the connections between the seasons, ZQ — both in nature and in your poetry. It always comforts me to know that Spring is in Winter’s shadow.

    Ha! I love the enigmatic tone of these two. I can see the apples in the bowl and….almost….taste the maple syrup!

    two-part poetry effectively separated.

    the tabletop seems so quiet… and waiting for chaos come spring

    I like that apples in wooden bowl, what make them …relatives …and second verse adding the feeling that one knows it all: where, when and what to do to enjoy life to its fullest… 🙂
