Apples Born in Springtime Magic
By Don Iannone

The mighty apple tree bears the weight
of her plump spring blossoms
proudly and gracefully,
knowing they represent
living messages
sent into a future
that she may never see.

And thus, we the story of life.

Don, like Kathleen I found same lines very powerful "...living messages
sent into a future that she may never see..."
Its as if the apple tree in your poem is mother earth and the plum, heavy apples are we.

The apple tree cannot but apple. It's in its apple nature.
