A Poem for Parents

from Nhojj Poetry Vol. 3 by Nhojj



This thought came to me over the holidays... 


The saying goes...
The apple doesn’t fall 
Far from the tree 

When the tree stands 
On a hill, it is only natural for its 
Fruit to roll down the hill into 
The valleys below...

The higher the hill
On which the tree stands
The further its offspring will probably fall... 

That only means 
Folk dwelling in the valleys below...
Folk who can’t make it up the hill
To sit under branches and enjoy your cool shade
...may also enjoy fresh apples

The best part though is this record...
After the people had eaten their fill and 
Tossed the seeds aside, the
Soil opened her arms and embraced them, and in time 
The seeds... became 
The seedlings... and the seedlings became the trees...

New trees
Standing in new places
But bearing the same fruit
The same fruit as the parent fruit
The same fruit as
