The Scythe

The scythe is an extension
of lean sharp muscle
and blade
The gentle swing in rhythm
of the season
smooth never forced
a meditation in movement
breathe in, breathe out
the hissing scratch
vibration of sound and mind
big yellow sun
chafe blowing free
sweat collects in dusty boots
the field lies flat
begging for the rake
