Acorns on the Way

acorns frilly

Pound Ridge, Leatherman's Loop

The hills are littered
with acorns
scattered—moldering wheels
that could take you down
long before you look out,
over maple-cradled
waters.

I have to admit that I now have a picture of you falling on your behind whilst hiking down the hill! :-)

Wonderful one-shot!

Dare I say I make three? (I jest.)

These are wonderful lines: "scattered-moldering wheels" and "maple-cradled/waters".

Great images, too.

Oh, "maple cradled waters." Insanely true. Been there. I miss the North. Thanks.

Those look like Burr Oak acorns to me. (Watch your step!)

Nice One Shot, L.L.

Your poem takes me back to when I was a girl and we "skated" on the acorns on the hill. A perfect poem for today--my mom and sisters and I were just talking about those "falls."
