    Love the cyclic link between 'born' and 'ripening'. Beautiful.

    where I grew up the giant conifer – missing or just smaller?

    I appreciate the connection you made–sometimes we are unaware of these until they are noticed by someone else. Thank you.

    __ The "time telling" earthly field and a rusty well pump; as the old brings the new, a greening field and the Blue Jay. _m

    rusted pump
    guards this greening field

    thank you for your response–yes, there is so much to appreciate in those days that we would forget if it were not for objects such as your "rusted pump."

    A lovely sense of growth and the passage of time in this, with the "ripening wheat" representing the narrator as an adult going back to the farm where he grew up.
