An old friend

a gardener

a poet

a photographer

a buddhist

who once shared

a ramshackle house with bees

has documented

hundreds of different

kinds of apples in the

New Zealand countryside

from abandoned trees

growing along highways

in farrow fields

away from human care.

The world will go on without us
