1.A  tired day dawns; I rose early so I could start mowing the fields, making hay before the sun shines; the morning air is crisp and there is a slight breeze wafting from the house, apple pie; how can I smell such a scrumptious flavour out in the fields?

2. In late morning, my stomach hungers for pie and for more food, something filling and some coffee; I find myself lost in my head, tired and eyes drooping from waking up at 4:00 am; there are still more fields to mow; shading my eyes, I observe the sky, such a clear brilliant blue; the beautiful sky illuminated by bright sunlight shock me, and I feel awake again.

3. It’s near the end of the day and my body is weary from mowing and all my other chores on the farm; I plan and ensure next year their is a bountiful harvest and more cows for milk and beef; yet I sigh, I dream a career change in my future ; but what does a lifetime farmer do? A man who didn’t graduate high school, how does he start a new?

      Thank you JR. I was trying to be more realistic in this piece, even though like with many others, crop circles is what comes to mind lol. Hope you are having a good week.

        Trying yes. Summer is a bit more laid back. People home on vacation from work so more time to spend with family and friends. Very nice actually 🙂

    I could sense his feelings very tangibly in your words! A hard life which he’s used to but would like to try something different…a change. Nicely done! ☺

    A great depiction of a farmer’s day. All the actions, sensations (colors, again–and yay, again), and challenges come across both real and engaging. The questions raised at the end have me thinking about the fate of farmers overall or simply the ambition this farmer might have. Thought-filled work, Mandi.

    Farmers have a hard job, but they are necessary. I’m glad some do continue on what maybe their family has done for generations. It would be very challenging to try something else, while providing for your family at the same time. Very good, Amanda!
