Fallen apples in field by Alyce Wilson

a garden golden-brown
where apples pull branches low
to paint grass with wasps

blackberries darken against vivid green
earth turns under my searching spade
worms slide deep against coming frost

pears hang against my hand
ripe soft with scents
that wait for taste
