Another row plowed.
Seeds are planted behind me.
So much work ahead.

One more row, then rest.
Free the horse from the harness;
leave the plow ready.

Ode to My Big Toe

Dear Big Toe,

We've been together since before I was born.
You've helped me balance;
I've taken you for granted.

Now I'll give you the pampering you deserve...
at least until the bandages come off
and we get back to normal.
