Tree Fruitions ---- Composed 2015

I've heard it takes a tree
twenty years to bear quality fruit

I have taken six decades
am still looking forward
to some juicy ones
yet a distance away
somewhere in the background
of a horizon far away

glad I am
many still come
my way
fragrances of my love....
many sway

shall
for some time more
ere I pass......

I understand the delight in tender fruit, juicy and delectable sweetness on the tongue! The old farmers have a knack for picking the juiciest, sweetest fruits, because they know when to pick them! Not too early or too late. Too early, and one might incur the bee's wrath, too late and the fruit may be overripe and mushy. You have the knowledge of many decades and surely know the vagaries of farming fruit! LoL

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

LOL LOOK DEEP
beyond the fruit ah

glad you seem to have got your laps top back next time replace it over 5 years old
Your vision of my poem is abs right like you Judy an Aussie liked my poetry
Sad she passed away so early

pain does not let many sustain
but
no pain no gain
I am not yet tho at that stage
nearing 83
but by heart
not an oldy
