Kallisti’s Promise
Mongrol

Here are apples on the tree
 1
rain wet green without a blush
 2
of the sun,
 3
and the best fruits here
 4
leave a stain to remember
 5
them, long ago.
 6
So far the blossom seems
 7
beyond winter, flowers count
 8
seconds with petals, the vestigial
 9
future hides secret under leaves,
 10
time remains to hang and grow
 11
fatter and greener
 12
being pulled down, wanting to
 13
jump, to save us,
 14
and catch the fruit as it falls,
 15
every moment
 16
it changes the further it
 17
gets from the tree.
 18
 
 
There is blossom on the tree,
 19
prismatic with dew
 20
and early light.
