Eden Hills

The challenge at d’Verse Poets today is to write a poem influenced by geography.  Of course, I chose to write about my farm, Eden Hills.  I’m also sharing with Real Toads for the Tuesday Platform.


Dust from the gravel road
carries my wishes to
the country gods of old–
A prayer for healthy kids
to grow strong in pasture;
A good year for crops to grow–
Hopes planted with the seeds;
dreams cultivated with crops.
A simple life of hard work
tied to the land I love.
Another year closer to heaven
while toiling in Earth’s Eden.

  1. Your Eden Hills words took me back to my childhood on a farm in north central Illinois. Those who farm are ever close to heaven, I think.

  2. Beautiful — it captures the wonderful aspects of this relationship between man and the resources. I love how you begin with a prayer — your gratitude and wisdom come through wonderfully in these words. 🙂
