Fallow

fallow-2

I left us to fallow
Ploughed and harrowed
Nothing sown.
Nothing grown.
Beware the lack of care
Hearts are not fields made to rest
But oxen
Made strong by force
Muscle strengthened over time
And toil.
Don’t allow soil
To settle too long.
The rot set in on our patch
Left to the air and rain.
Nothing planted again.
