Wheels of baled hay bask in October sun:
Gold circles strewn across the sloping field,
They seem arranged as if each one
Has found its place; together they appeal
To some glimpsed order in my mind
Preceding my chance pausing here --
A randomness that also seems designed.
Gold circles strewn across the sloping field
Evoke a silence deep as my deep fear
Of emptiness; I feel the scene requires
A listener who can respond with words, yet who
Prolongs the silence that I still desire,
Relieved as clacking crows come flashing through,
Whose blackness shows chance radiance of fire.
Yet stillness in the field remains for everyone:
Wheels of baled hay bask in October sun.
- Robert Pack, Baled Hay

Just linking up some fun today about yucky food.
Linking up with a Blitz that's a little on the low side

Hi Sanaa, hi Toad, and happy Tuesday! I'm linking up with a poem about my name, written for dVerse Poetics.
Oh that’s awesome! 😍 Can’t wait to read you, Kim. Happy Tuesday!💞☕️
Happy Tuesday, Toads! Thanks, Sanaa, for imagining this week's Tuesday Platform! :)
I like the Robert Pack poem. We saw a lot of baled hay on our weekend jaunt over to Louisiana this weekend. Also some baled cotton. We didn't stop to glean any but there was plenty of cottom going to waste on the plants that were machine picked. That too was worthy of a poem.
Thanks, Sanaa, for hosting.
And thank you for joining us, Frank!💞☕
Thank you so much, Jim 😊 Happy Tuesday!💞☕
