Harvest – 2006


I watch the harvest brought in over the hills
See the flowers fruit and the bees gather the
Last of the year’s honey to sweeten their hives
The dark settles in earlier now

Soon the geese will move to sunnier climes
I wish my heart was moved as easily
The brown leaves start to twist in the late heat
Before dying dusty on the grass

My hopes and happiness lie as they do
Once part of something so magnificent so flawless
So strong they adorned the tree of my love
For you and our life together

But you let corruption in to eat the heartwood
The fruit left rotten on the bough
And all that is left at summer’s end is a husk
And those dead dry leaves

About titflasher

Writer, blogger, animal activist, people activist, dream-catcher maker, mommy to 9 cats and a roving band of foxes ... Blog name comes from my father's suggestion for the title of my autobiography ... after my mother's and my awful habit of flashing whenever the security police took our photo in the dark old days of apartheid South Africa. I love nature, including creepy crawlies and people, find life fascinating and frustrating and have two terrible weaknesses - nictotine and animals in distress ... can't abide the latter situation and can't give up the former. I'm Pagan but not anti-Christian, funny but quite serious, light-hearted but can be annoying. I am warm-hearted until someone p*sses on me too much, then I get soggy and even. Feel free to link me but all the words on these pages is copyrighted, so copy it and take the credit and I will find you and slap you upside the head, hard. The blog is probably best read via category as there is loads on here already, and I just got started :-)
