To the apple trees

how caressive
she held within her outstretched arms
trembling goblets purified golden

while gently braiding comfort
through fallen light

oh beloved beheaded
mother tree
you who were banished
from this space
called sacred

under your crown lay
graves of love
your roots now
suffer sulfur

here we gather
when earth
returns
your fingerprints

clarity opens
your story
has begun
again

Author's Note
dedicated to the apple trees of the former garden\former place I lived who were all taken down by the new owners only because they made a road to drive up to their house, rather asphalt than trees it seems. In honor of the nature spirits.
