Madness

 
 
 


midsummer madness—
 
the thud of neglected plums
 
falling to the earth

    Falling fruit does thud and then rots if no one picks it up….

    I can hear the thud and imaging the sweet juiciness running down my chin.

  5. It does seem mad if it is not picked up and enjoyed, unless other creatures have a chance to delight in the sweetness.

  6. Nonnie says:

    oh, how sad if no one gets to enjoy its sweetness! I continue to admire your very graphic weaving of words.

    Oh it is madness indeed. Especially when one such plum tree, actually two said plum trees, are over my deck and make a plum-jam mess. Every. Summer. Plus I had to pick prunes/plums as a kid. I shudder at that thud. I have plum PTSD. I know. More information than you every imagined, but this where your madness took me!
