A Harrowing Harvest

thresherman's sledge

 

These tines, thresher’s sledge

gouging flesh, tearing

chaff from stalk in one

smooth strike. Plundering

periphery has

its benefits; as

empty hulls fall to

the earth, seeds awake

to freshly ploughed soil.

    A marvelous thought (looking forward to the thawing of the soil … might be a while … but eventually … right???)
