A Time To Reap

A long, hot season
stretches out; another year’s reason

Approaching year’s end
single mother-hood looms; days extend

School days are closing
awards, presentations, plays; imposing

Husband’s are working
long days and nights; exerting

Gaps that need filling
collecting, driving, cooking, feeding

Pausing for breakdowns
parts, fuel, tools, kids; town

Night falls the same
what is sleep, just a name

Maybe sun, showers or frost
hoping all is not lost

Christmas, New Year and all
at season’s end, let rest fall
