Fence Posts

In the field of
my life
a cultivated ground
with memories of
peaceful pasturage
now turned under
fertilized
and pesticides
profusely applied
for the coming crops…
there remains
but one constant reminder
of the beauty once contained
within these boundaries.

I am a farmboy...and have seen many pastures turned under for crops...only fence posts remain as a reminder of the lush pasturage.
