forecast blues


stuck weather pattern only brings more rain

while farmers ripe to harvest feel the strain

soybeans swell fat, cornstalks rot wet

without a crop, families grow debt

we hope and pray for sun to shine again!


(oh no, could that be snow?!)




Linking to dVerse  poets’ pub where Frank is toasting iambic pentameter…

    Nice poem! I’m sure the farmers in my area can relate!
