I love you like

the worms loved

the apple they ate

which fell from

the tree that shades

this empty world.

Hi MP,

 

A sense of Fall from grace in the biblical Eden, a love that perhaps destroys or is forbidden comes across in this poem.

 

The worms ate the apple because it was there and the apples? Was it to be 'plucked' in this way?

 

Gives one quite a lot to think.

Iconic images MP., but still wonderfully imaginative. All consuming.

 

I've missed the inspiration of your work.

 

Many thanks to Aleks for allowing us to share.

This is remarkable. How I 've missed your work! It is wonderful how your voice comes out of your poetry. I love that!

 

I also had the idea of the biblical Eden when I read this.

 

We miss you around MP.

 

Thanks Alek! Keep sharing his work!

Thank you my friend for sharing your thoughts about John's poetry. I really love his changed style. I sent to him some poems with our comments, and thanks to you all who are reading and commenting on his poems. Thank you from his name. I know he is happy to read all of us, and that he is not forgotten.

 

Thank you Badge and Summayya, it is my pleasure to share here his work. And I will keep doing that.

 

Thank you for reading

Instead of 'empty'......I'd be more hopeful......perhaps use 'october'...instead....

and I'd also use a particular apple that you like.......crab apple.....?

perhaps not an apple......a peach.......not bad though....
