Poem: Crush 2014

We have traveled to the Napa valley of California for a wedding.  It happens to be harvest season here, which the locals (or maybe the tourist board) call “Crush”.  Such events are inspiration for poetry…

P1070899When the fruit is ripe
Harvest.
Gather the season’s
Labor
From planting to pruning.
Attend
To the maturing
Until
The day to pick
Is right.
Then celebrate
The new
Life that comes by
Blending
Many lives for a new
Vintage.

About hermitsdoor

Up here in the mountains, we have a saying, "You can't get there from here", which really means "We wouldn't go the trouble to do that". Another concept is that "If you don't know, we ain't telling." For the rest, you'll have to read between the lines.
