Fermentations, Ruminations & Meditations

Summer at Finnriver

Summer at Finnriver


The earth is strumming 

a green jig and I can’t stand still


I skip and twirl 

to the summer melody 

swirling through the season


I stare at ripening fruit 

in the orchard and swear 

I can hear it singing along 


The only quiet place is in the shade of the alders 

by the creek but even there 

the birds are all a-flutter


In my hair I find lavender flowers and bits of grass


This is the season of fruit

when everything is ripe

when we open our mouths wide

open our hearts wider

and try with great gulps

to take it all
