    A Poem


    I hope posting a poem is ok here.


    My Poem
    Sitting on a clifftop looking out to sea
    I see a meremaid softly motioning to me
    Floating etherally in a purple mist
    I descend to her and we kiss
    She tells me of things past and old
    Of the greed of men and their desire for gold
    She speaks of Gods come and gone
    Buried in the minds of people long dead
    She speaks of people who sold their souls
    Just to get ahead
    We drift
    Later that day in the deep
    Side by side we fall asleep
    Blissfully we dream of the love we’ve found
    And I know I’ll never again touch
    Dry ground

    A friend made the tag for me, I too have enjoyed using it.
    The farmers here grow pink tomatoes as a extra income crop , using hot-houses to start their plants in Feb, until ready to transplant in the prepared fields as early as late March or later if we have late year freezes, hoping they are market ready by late May, ready for the local PINKTOMATO Festival the 2nd weekend in June annually, this year will be #58 , everyone is invited to attend , along with many activities, the pinktomato luncheon etc., come on down.

    Thank you for the invitation.

    I'm disabled & live on a fixed income.
    I get to the store & visit the doctor.
    That's about it.

    I raised lots of tomatoes last year.
    Three plants actually, in tall cages.
    I gave a bunch to my neighbors.
    They enjoyed them.

    I raised some cucumbers & made sweet pickles.
    Gave away lots of them.

    Raised
    jalapeño peppers too.

    I got a big yield from all my plants.

    This year, if I live, I'll do tomatoes & sweet peppers.
    They want $1.59 for ONE green pepper here in the store.

    I've been through Arkansas before.
    Nice country.
    About the same as the Shenandoah Valley here.
