Apple Orchards in June

A picture I took last fall while apple picking with my family.

I dream of apple orchards in June

The flower buds are too silent,
I prefer the crunch of leaves

I dream of green grass in January

The snowbanks are too high,
I wish they’d turn to ash with a summer breeze

With the languid months my mind wanders
To the discovery of a key
That seems to open a new door
To a place I’d rather be
