Concerning Apple Pie

Concerning Apple Pie

Poem by Helen Losse
Art by Jimmy Pitts

The rain has made mud
of the low-lying meadow.
Yellow pollen floats thereon.
Bits of green grass stand tall
beneath autumn leaves.

A hungry poet is trapped—
wearing orange at-home socks
in a room of her own home.
The joy of a muddy meadow
is bird-dance in noonday sun.

The apple pie I smell beckons
from a distant cabin, and I wait
for the promise of taste.
The birds and I welcome
a poem striving to make itself
worthy of fresh-baked pie.

-refers from the word room in Scott Owens’ 13 Ways of Angels


  1. What an amazing combo!
    The heat from the painting coupled with the poem about apple pie–I can smell the cinnamon!

  3. Amazing blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a
    little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a
    free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many
    options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
    Any recommendations? Many thanks!
