On a Perfect Heaven-Like Day —- Wednesday, March 18, 2020

On a very perfect day

With metal sharp and cold, shining like silver 

Terry started plowing the land

Charming the soil into thick rich rolls

A wonderous dance, which takes place in last year’s cornfields

 

The sent of the fresh-turned earth like none other

Leaving the life-giving cornstalks in the soil to develop into rich loam.

He then flattens all the clods and raised places making sure the corn stalks are there for the little earthworms to turn into the perfect food for this year’s crop.

What a huge gift to be able to live on the land.
