The Apple Tree of My Life

The Apple Tree of My Life

The giant apple tree in the back garden stands proudly laden with snow,
the first dusting of fall.
It is like a miracle.
It is not that I have not seen her before.
In fact I greet her every day;
For I have seen her beauty,
her poise,
her charm,
and her grace.
But for today it is different;
For today I see that in her strength,
her living,
her suffering,
and her surrender to change.
In her season opening, she is truly magnificent.
