To The Trees
Today we spent some time among the trees - in their shade, under their leaves, on top of their branches. I pulled the red wagon along the dusty tracks, footprints of pick-up trucks past. Audrey filled our bag one Golden Delicious or Jonagold at a time, lingering in the twisted branches. Nathan, ahem, tasted the earth as only a babe will. We took in the afternoon, each bite, apple, and drop of shade sweet to the touch. We left, our wagon heaped with produce and smiling babes, sweetened by the sunshine and gifts of Fall.
