Fruit & The End

I’ve looked for fruit in numbers
And what should be
If I’d arrive-
But the path I’d somehow found
Was through a door
To my own table

It was here
I had discovered-
Denying my convenience
Was to break the solemn bread



So I lift the cup
&
Pass the wine
In memory now-
Looking not
For what’s to come
Or when I should arrive-

It isn’t numbers
Or to an end
It is within
This moment-

Beautiful header! The poem is rather deep, but lovely, I'm thinking it can mean many things. I'd heard about the crows dropping nuts down on the highway for cars to crack, but had forgotten about that!

Flat Creek Farm said...

Lovely poem, and I am in love with that building! Of course, since I have certain feathered friends on the brain currently... I think it would make the perfect chicken coop :)

One of my favorite flowers in your header too... gorgeous! -Tammy

Sandra, ya, I'm making it an aim to highlight some the not so obvious aspects of the Island.
Grateful for your visit Dave! That's cool-

A poem that makes us think. Appreciation of what is ours instead of longing for what is not.

But this time not a bird in the hand, but a bird in a cabin. Nice photos of the inside, the inhabitants and the landscape beyond.

Your comment about the whale hunting ban interested me. What's going on? Does this have anything to do with the oil spill? I can't think of a connection.

This is a beautiful poem. Some of the lines make me think of communion. Your words are always deep, spiritual, and heartfelt. Take care :)
