Withered Fruit

by stewart

In some ways, I am that berry

that has stayed long on the vine.

My ripe days in the sun

have past.

Watching others get picked

and moving on

has left me tired and heavy-hearted.


Is there a recipe

that calls for a withered fruit.

This I do not know

and wonder;

will I ever make it to a table

or remain in this shadowy place?
