Mirchi – scenes of a harvest picante from an urban organic farm


Warm sun in the backyard

on a mid November morning.

White-crowned sparrows n

Ruby-crowned Kinglets,

in the trees fluttering,

singing, proclaiming their

winter kingdoms, fleeting.

As I harvest the last of the chilies,

summer heat trapped within

their green/orange/red skin,

from green-thumbed Kaberi’s

organic farm, miraculous

in our patch of suburbia.

And listen to the good doctor

cast on the pod, talking films.

(Hello, Jason Isaacs!)

Perfect Saturday!

Except my women are half a world away…
