The Harvest Calls!
by Robin Fennelly
Age Group: Adult
The harvest calls
Time to reap
What you have sown.
Flesh and bone
Tears and blood
All into the making
Of your harvest’s yield.
And, what have you sacrificed
As you stand ready to
Receive your reward?
What have you tended
And nurtured that
Has not produced
What have you neglected
And allowed to wither and fall
Because you did not
See its bounty?
What sunlight and rain
Have you drawn into
Your own being to grow
The harvest of your
The harvest calls
Time to reap
What you have sown!
Author's Notes: In the Spirit of Lammas, this poem offers up a call to look more carefully about how your efforts and focus are directed. The First Harvest brings us to a place of sacrificing what is not viable yield and gathering to ourselves what will nourish and sustain us throughout the months ahead. What hope and potential was fed at Imbolc is now manifest and what choices we make to cut away to reach the ripeness of that potential will impart their wisdom on the next Turn of the Wheel.
