Apple Picking

By Laurie Epps

About this time every year, we head to the mountains of North Carolina to go apple picking. This quaint little poem brings the nostalgia of yesteryear, and the feel of the legend of Johnny Appleseed. 

We love the dividend of our labor. How many ways can you use your bounty of apples? Our favorite apple recipes include praline apple bread, and apple chicken stew. What are some of yours? Feel free to share them below in the comments section. Thank you.

Apple Picking
By Laurie Epps

The promise of fall
Apple blossoms, earth’s perfume
Floating in the air

Hiking to the top
For bounty of the earth
Trunks rise to orchards

An army of fruit
Waiting to be harvested
By eager tourists
