for good food and good friends we give thanks

these prayers/poems were chosen by my friends for their farm's website: fertile crescent farm. if you're in the richmond, va or farmville, va area & interested in a CSA, you'll want to sign up with our friends. the 2010 season will be our third and we're VERY excited! we still enjoy the shares with what we froze.

since i maintain the website for these great folks, i'm able to be reminded of these quite often. i share them today with these adorable mushrooms i photographed during the fall at my son's school. for good food and good friends we give thanks.

Geese appear high over us, pass, and the sky closes.

Abandon, as in love or sleep, holds them to their way,

clear in the ancient faith: what we need is here.

And we pray, not for new earth or heaven,

but to be quiet in heart, and in eye, clear.

What we need is here.

-Wendell Berry

I thank you God

for this most amazing day,

for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky

and for everything which is natural, which is infinite,

which is yes.

~e.e. cummings
