DP: Ode to an Orchard Playground


A place from your past or childhood, one that you’re fond of, is destroyed. Write it a memorial.

i stand on hot concrete

staring at a large edifice of

glass like steel and

steel  like glass.

yet I do not see this



reflected in the mirror like steel

i see a cluster of

wild apple trees,



through the eyes of  children

it is a  magical orchard

created just for them

lying in the tall grass,

shaded by succulent fruit

a Garden of Eden

perfect backdrop for

imaginary games and

apple banquets

fit for a princess
