Jer

The wheel turns
as the sod crunches
frozen beneath the cart.

The wheel turns
as the snow melts
and the plow bites
into the earth’s darkness.

The wheel turns
as the rains come
and light green dusts
the breast of the field.

The wheel turns
and golden stalks wave
in warm, lush winds
under a brilliant sky

The wheel turns
as the scythe whooshes
through the golden stalks
at the time of harvest.

The wheel turns
and time repays you
for the patience you’ve shown
about the seeds you sowed.
