Fresh Start #photography #poetry

 

I breathe in fresh dawn of a new day

I look back upon the crisp winter morn

before my shovel through the snow it breaks

I can see where nature between winter’s thaw is torn

but I’ll choose the welcome Pacific spray

 

I wanted to share a Fresh opportunity to share your poetry for a project (that I am part of) that will benefit orphans of Ebola. If you write poetry have a look.

 

“FRESH” is This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge

Fresh! #agriculture #poetry #photography

They’ve made sunshine artificial

cellophane contains rainforest mist

we tread never ending stairway

all that’s living sorely missed

*

music tuned on rounds of plastic

nature sneers in futility baulks

nothing here really matters

our food source comes fresh from a box

*

green is just another color

nothing in the dirt is real

silk are all the flowers blooming

all that swims comes from Mercury’s reel

*

break a pack it will cool you

smash these gels for your feet

what you hold is meant to fool you

supplement the real de-feat

*

This is a rant that I wrote after eating pesticide laden veggies from Mexico. The Central Valley in California is more than capable of growing the crops for the nation and yet it is often short-changed by big business and politics in Northern and Southern California. I loved reading this morning (on the box) that my clementines are sprayed with wax or better yet resin. Well they have to be they are shipped from Morocco.

This article California’s Central Valley is about the volume of fresh produce, dairy and meat coming from the under represented  but productive area in California..
