Part of this year's April Poem A Day challenge.

Written about an Osage Orange (AKA Hedge Apple) seedling I'm growing.


1. Tree

Little tree,

you are not more

than three leaves

But you lived where hundreds fell

from one single fruit

all your siblings are gone


You hold much potential,

a long lived variety

known for making excellent bow-wood

and fruit adept at chasing away spiders


You'll grow twisted and knotted

at your own pace


And one day

strange knobby fruit

will grace your limbs

and your children will spring forth
