Deciduosity

Planted

Near several towering evergreens,

the bare, squat crabapple,

practically shorn of all fruit

by agile, marauding squirrels,

cares little.

Its small whips

shine in the brightening sun

and dance in a warm wind

signalling spring.

  1. Being a bit of a crabapple myself, I love this. It can be intimidating to keep peering up at those evergreens, so perhaps i’t’s better to just wave a few whips around in the sunshine!
