* Harvest's Invitation - Poem by Debora Short

Eyes, sparkling and fully engaged
Witnessing both the food
And the product
Winds blowing cedars scent
Oh, those so many branched places
That call and process
Words that eye both
In mind
On paper
On forest
On those sweet Tennessee warblers
On that hawk that rests
On those power lines out front
On lovely fall wildflowers
On multi-hued maple leaves
On Joe ~ Pye Weeds and Goldenrod
On those last morsels
Of Summers Queen Anne Lace
Eyes of full intent
That harvest
In a blessed thanksgiving
All these offerings
Fond gifts of time
A Seasonal habit
Offering colors, last bits
Of summer’s very warmth
Sequels eternal replay
Engaged in spotlights eye
Bringing all to
Harvests’ so bountiful table
