I am obsessed with my "laughing corn"!
It entertained me all summer,
providing me with music to my ears all through the season.
Now, all the ears have been harvested,
and we will await winter...

When the day winds down
and the clock gets slow,
the daylight dims
to even’s glo.
I sit and look past
the fields below
watching the clouds lying low....
And wish you were mine.
The clouds in their splendorous light-
I wonder if you see it so?
Here on earth or in heaven’s gaze
I wish you were mine,
to have to hold for tomorrow, next year.
But you are not here.
There’s the colors, do you see?
Lavender and pink and grey.
It’s in the sunset and the sea.
How can I keep this grief at bay?
Are you in the even’s glo?
I think of the time, when you
were mine, and the places we would go.
You belong to the ages now,
timeless as the sea.
It will be my turn one day.
But for now, I still long for the time
when you were mine.
Even’s glo has turned to dark.
See the stars in the sky?
Big Dipper, Milky Way,
then comets fly.
I reach out my arm as if to touch.
It’s only a shadow in the air.
This grief is almost too hard to bear.
It’s cool now and all the colors of the day
have melted into night.
Like a baby, I draw your quilt around me,
and I dream.
Suddenly, I see you waving to me in the
even’s glo, an outline in the fading light.
Your arms are real now.
You reach, we embrace.
At last, you are mine.
I awake, and know the dream,
We have been here before.
Now I can go, go in peace.
You’re here beside me, and in me,
and around me.
You’re in the light,
the day, and the night,
as I walk into even’s glo.

No so for the cucumbers– they are going to explode again, soon, and MUST be picked every day, or at least every other day to keep them from getting too big. I love these cucumbers for pickling, and three got big, by being missed accidently from picking, so two went into the relish, and one got made into refridgerator cucumber salad. Oh My- these are so crunchy!
There’s going to be tomatoes, and corn to can and freeze.
And there’s going to be watermelons- two types, and some rogue cantaloupe.
Here's a tip for some nice music to listen to while doing your bean cutting or kitchen work: The group name is "First Aid Kit" and they are two Swedish sisters. I really like this album "Stay Gold". They have a country western flair- and I like it!
The pantry is getting more full by the minute. And I’m getting tired off all the cucumbers. Want to get back to sewing– very soon- but that’s not going to happen......Oh well, the respite from sewing may inspire new projects– who knows?Happy Canning to you as well....!
