Little Orchard

Stand there tall beautiful orchard
Your green 
shine to dilate my visions
I have seen you wilt at your worst
And I have seen you ride the tide to flourish

O flourish. Wet my tongue in season
And bank my life's residuals
I share you with the ones that rent a nest
The ones that mourn the day and fly the 
night.

I will never know any more invisible hands
There are the ones that steal a gallon of 
seeds
There are birds that feeds on your fruits' 
juices
Then the ground that hugs you in 
complements

Little Orchard lay a busket on my doorsteps
For I had closely nurtured and nursed your 
buds
Feed my spirit for in you I have self 
fulfilment
In you I am proud to watch and whine 
with the guests,
'beautiful orchard it is'.

    An orchard is much like life for there are frosts, freezes, thaws and long sunny days as the ebbs and flows of being mark our journey through this life. Well done Sizo.

    Amazing, I almost forget what the poem was talking about. It was so intriguing.
