Poetry Advent Calendar Day 12

Today’s feature is a poem by Robert Hilles from his collection of love poems Shimmer. “Organic Love” hearkens back to warm summer months and reminds us of those tender moments.
Organic Love
Love is made of soil
Clay, wind, rock, and bone
The way an apple
Rounds and ripens to pulp and juice
So love ripens
At an apple orchard
You pick one
And offer it to me
And I pick another and offer it to you
Love deepens
Is round and ripe
