Harvest Cycle [Common Meter]

The field is neat; the stalks are baled;
the grain sits in baskets
to be carried back home to dry 
on thin sheets of plastic.

The chaff will be cracked from the grain
so that it can be ground
into flour, and baked into bread
that I'll eat sans a sound

as I enjoy the view.
