Harvest

It’s raining again and the winter barley waits

for a gap in the clouds

and a call to the contractors,

for a time slot

three weeks in the future,

not soon enough.

And we will watch

as the gap in the clouds

rolls on past us

onto different fields

greyness in its wake

as the heads droop

and the stems crumple

waiting for better weather.
