Spring breeze carries scent
Sweet blossom preceding fruit
Heady bouquet drives
Bees into giddy madness
Homeward bound with rich bounty

Mowing summer grass
Weeding predatory vines
Spraying against blight
Watching fruit take shape on branch
Waiting to know our harvest

Trucks throaty rumble
Bearing workers to harvest
Tart sweet fruit of fall
Tractors hauling trailers full
Crates spilling bounty in path

Winter seals the earth
Tractor tires grind into fields
Spreading detritus
From factory production
Returning earth’s gifts to her
