Harvest Festival in the UK 2014

We plough the fields and scatter

Well no I don’t
Occasionally I dig the earth
And weed
Although I do like scattering
Seed
Poppies, aquilegias, love-in-a-mist
And foxgloves…
Probably not what was meant
For the good seed on the land
Although I did plant
A tomato seedling
From a plastic throwaway cup
To a trough outside
That was meant to have
Lettuces
Until I put a load of pinks
In instead.

The tomatoes went wild
But chutney is calling
As mellow mists have caught up
And they are in danger of going black
But it is fed and watered
By God’s almighty hand.
Well actually
I do it…
Or don’t…
But then He has no hands
But ours
And when He sends the rain
It seems to miss
The pots and troughs…

…but not the weeds…
