His Sapling Lemon Tree

Nothing unusual blossomed this spring, yet, I marvel at the growth of her resilience ~ In morning's half-light I watch her fondle branches, then, smile, reassured.... It makes my eyes sting...as if burned by the fruit's tangy juice ~ He would have been pleased to know three lovely lemons survived winter's frost

    Ahhh, sweet Carrie, the way you toy with form makes me disgusted with my meager rhymes and treasure the work of artists like you. Your pen and ink can be so delightfully flippant at times. I just can't help loving you.... Jake

    This stung my eyes--if this is about your daughter it couldn't be more perfect--if this is beyond metaphor and really true and he did plant the tree before...well...what can I say! And if it's totally fiction you have made it true!
