Michael Edwards






Overhead the orchard’s boughs

dyed black with deepest shades of night,

and laden they with seasons fruit

in filigree against the sky.

    Wonderful - - both picture and words. Another gem Michael.

          HI MICHAEL ~ Love the Painting and the Poem equally ~ they are symbiotic ! I know from experience that Orchards in the Evening are a perfect Lovers Tryst ~ perfumed with the scent of Apples. Thanks for sharing ~ BRIAN
