Moon Over the Corn

The full moon rises over the cornfield.

She marks the passage of time

From the sprouting of tiny seeds

To way more than knee high

By the fourth of July.

Tassels and ears suddenly appear as

Each stalk soars towards the sky.

The lush rich green disappears, and

The leaves begin to rustle like paper.

As the latest full moon makes

Her ascent over the golden field,

It will be time for the fall harvest.

  1. I love to think of the passage of time. Each Harvest moon sees a new season. Lives are different yet life is in many ways the same.

    • I loved this. I grew up in an area where there were many grains and I loved to drive out this time of year and see them in their glory. Beautiful images. Thanks, Gay (@beachanny)
