Down on the Farms

Early in my life
Craig and Kraus farms
Summers with my relatives
       Playing in the hay
       Picking beans
Different lifestyle
Than my life in town.

Later I entered Hanna farm
Met new relatives
Where he spent summers
       Driving a tractor
       Picking corn
Away from his life in town.

Today's farms offer children
visits to farmers unknown
limited time in field trips
       seeing food not packaged
       homegrown from seed to table
Away from life in town

Down on the farms.

Lydia Revised

Lydia (1761)

She walks the shore
Breathes salt air
Where water suffocated him.

Stripped of her husband
She searches
Solace on sand.

Arms across
Hollow heart
She suffers the unwanted.

As waves before her
Love and loss
Ebb and flow.

As limitless horizons
Anger and grief
Stretch through her.

As moonlight spreads
On stilled seas
Acceptance comes.

Weeping and walking
Love brings her
Where water took him.
