pear trees in bloom 
from the old archtop 
music from my youth

    Hi Charlie,

    Winter scared oakling.
    spring brings
    the verdant mantle...

    Thanks, Charlie.

    My family had pear and apple trees in our old yard in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. Your poem brings back some nice memories.

    this is an attempted

    nostalgic link to

    the pear tree verse

    or maybe 'youth' is the link...



    she stops to speak

    with her old friend here aged

    her lip gloss shines

    (they parted his step stronger

    his attention to thought improved)

    smooth sounds
    humbucker pickup
