“For the unlearned, old age is winter;
for the learned it is the season of the harvest.”
-The Talmud

Autumnal Wind
 
Clay ovens are earth;
Terracotta bowls;
Buried inside the ground;
Warming from darkness…
Seasons harvesting;
Fermentations begin;
Inside rustic kilns;
Our dough rises…
Set with wet cloths;
The yeast swells;
Warms the soul;
Kneading begins…
Fritters deep fried;
Inside cast irons;
Fresh churned butter;
We picked fruit kernels;
Black raspberries for jam…
Horned goats are milked;
Tapioca is made fresh;
The hen house is quiet;
Eggs are in our basket…
The rooster cocks crow;
Wild boars are penned;
Shelves are neatly stocked;
Autumnal wind breaks limbs...
 
…Winter arrives soon

Wow you really prepare for winter, and in the right way! Would love to experience all those aromas and goodies at your house - I published a piano book of music I wrote back in the "spring" of my years named "Autumnal Tints" - Last time I used that word. I like it, but somehow I changed the name when I published. --and by the way, your writing and command of words keeps rising, even since I started reading you a year or so ago - and your prolific too...

I enjoyed reading the details of this bustling and buckling-down for the coming weather. Sounds like peaceful living.

You have truly blossomed as a poet, Vickie. I remember when I had trouble figuring out you vickiese. (LOL respectfully)... You write with soul that reaches my soul. Music, actually. Love, hugs, and very best wishes,

Braided lasso of barbwire is good for healing scars. My hen house isn't all that quiet, mistress...Autumnal Wind showcases multifarious country traditions in western poetic boutique...this would do well in a country fair entered in the open category, Autumnal Wind decompauged and shellaced on a piece of barnwood...a purple Rosetta write...

Love,
Sage
