present-ing…

(Poem inspired by article at The High Calling & poetics “gift” prompt at dVerse.)

 

work is life gift

created to create

something productive

with whatever we have

stretch and hone abilities

promote one’s self-respect

provide for own desires

satisfy another’s need

give something back

to world we live in

joyfully serve six

actively rest one

weekly rhythm

work is life

…a gift!

 

summer solstice

 

light holds night at bay

warm earth blooms, time to make hay

farmer’s favorite day

 

dandelion lawn

cows in pasture, tractor’s song

work as day is long
