Cows In The Pasture

however far away
place holders
for a summer’s day

The Haven Of Barns


come winter
they will encompass
my world

Wood Duck Box By The Old Corn Field


the frozen marsh
the fallow field
everything in its time

At The Homestead


the farm stand
the house and the barn
a trinity of roofs

Strawberries


red, ripe, juicy
summer hauntings
of winter’s slow end

Hay the Field


rites
of summer
field work and sunshine

In the Nature of Farming


precision
of the cornfield abuts
the rambunctious fence line

Readiness


the field prepared
weather on the move
commencement of the growing season

Pumpkin Patch

orange tide
awaits the moon
and frost to call it home

Good Morning

morning graze
the river flows
and songbirds serenade

Three Sisters

corn waits
and holds a place for her sisters
beans and squash

Bygone Days

DSC02285
Keeping nothing in and no one out
the wall wanders the mountain
dreaming of open fields and hand plows.

Ready Field


Tilled earth soaks up the sun
and waits for the seeds
of this season’s purpose to be planted.

Sleeping Garden

Down in the field the garden bed sleeps
dreaming of rain, flowers and food
and knowledgeable hands that coax and groom.
