Just Bloom

What should I make of this apple tree?

Is it confused?

Or is it just a rebel?

Maybe while the rest of the trees are going dormant, this one chooses to shake an arborial fist at impending winter.

Maybe this one dreams of a second spring and has taken a leap of faith.

Maybe this doesn’t want the maples getting all the attention these days, and it’s showing off a bit.

Maybe this one just decided to present the farm with a parting gift before the sleep of winter begins.

Whatever the reason, I am grateful for this little bloom.  It will  never be an apple, but it seems satisfied to be a pretty little note in our symphony of color.

Love Wins
