Fall Harvest This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


The smell of harvest, only smelt once a year.
The smell of plant lifeslowly going dormant for the year.
Changing leaves on trees, grain turninggolden brown beneath the fall sun.
Farmers eagerly checking crops
Everyonegetting excited to combine the first stem of grain.
Cool mornings, warmdaytime.
Heavy dew, sopping like a weeping child.
Farmers shining up theirequipment.
Elevators getting ready.
Then the combines begin.
The dust isflying
The grain is gathered from its motherly stalk.
Long hours, littlesleep
All to feed the world.
