Caleb.A

A seat beneath the apple tree

Sit beneath the apple tree

where the apple falls far from.

Sit beneath the apple tree

where the apple falls hard from, gossip

 amongst the tainted leaves

where the whispers sit far from,

take your leave amongst the leaves

and an apple you bit half from.

To the core,

To the core,

bite the apple, to the core.

Lay rest in the shadow of the whispers;

make your bed in the bed of before.

      WELCOME CALEB ~ Thanks for your first poem ~ intriguing ! APPLE TREES & APPLES are important in literature and folk law. They speak of Temptation (Eve) and Love (Solomon).

              Intriguing post some different interpretations for me.

              Eating the apple to the core and laying in the bed of before.

              Perhaps it reminded me a little of the saying, if you keep doing what you have always done...

                                    Possibly the best poem that I've read on this site; I've read over 10,000. Welcome to this friendly place!

                                    You might want to capitalize the t in 'to the core'. A ; after 'whispers' in the second to last line would be appropriate too, if it fits.

                                      Wow, I am lost for words. Thank you sooo much my friend, and additional for the editing suggestions - greatly appreciated!
