The Field on Wednesday

fall leaves, tree branch, dead leaves

The Field


I passed a field today

that I have passed several times.

As I passed I looked long at it.

It was overgrown past the point of use.

Trees stood in it where hay use to sit.

The weeds were also high and taking over.

Why had the current owner let trees

grow in the middle of the field?

It would take years

to get all of the weeds out of the grass.

I grew angry while looking at the field.

At one time that field

had been great for making hay.

Now it would be good for nothing.

Why did the current owner, a friend,

let the field become useless?



Have you ever had an experience like this?
