The season
for seed planting
is done

The season
for fruit picking
is ending

The season
for seed gathering
is at hand

The season
for herb drying
is under`way

The season
for thanksgiving
was will be is now

The season
for doing peace
is forever today

“To all those million verses in the world I’ve added just a few.
They probably are no wiser than a cricket’s chirrup.
I know. Forgive me. I’m coming to the end.” ~ Jaroslav Seifert


About Peter Notehelfer

I'm a retired people person who now finds the time to watch the little details of the world without worrying about being watched by anyone . . . I live on an Island north of Seattle with my wife named Ellen, a yellow dog named McGee, a yellow cat named Gatzby, and four fine chickens . . . I read fiction, bake bread, smoke salmon, and fish whenever the weather allows . . . Oh, and yes, I try to write a poem every day simply to avoid senility!

    This would be a wonderful addition to the global event being held by 100,000 Poets for Change.

    Peter, I’m so glad that Michael suggested you join us today … and yes this is perfect … and the season for doing peace is indeed every day.
