pulling out summer’s weeds – September 27

9.27

pulling out summer’s weeds,

crop, mixed veggies,

to free the soil for a

winter breath.

 

the soils roil and roll, sift

and smother, indentations

marking where the spade

dives under

 

to separate, chop, cleave,

roots that cling.

the ground will thank us

in the spring.
