I just got tired of looking at those needles
and that 'bed' where I lay for the treatment.
So I went in to my files and pulled out a photo
that I took last September in Rhode Island
that reminds me of weekend drives with the little birds
to pick apples, or just have a picnic at Lyman's Orchards
Wearing jackets and maybe having to take them off because
the afternoon would warm up and be a typical Indian Summer
and the pesky yellow jacket bees
that seem to be out and about
looking for those sweet, fallen apples.
Yes, much better than looking at acupuncture needles.
