Unknowing Trade

Now I never will

trade away peaches without knowing

they are gold

 

Until now I never knew

 

Their worth

Their sweetness

Their shine

 

Or the sincere simplicity

I once held at their peak

Of ripeness

 

Which I cannot buy again

But can wait for

 

the honesty

to say hello to them

again

 

Next season
