As things wind down for the season, this poem strikes a chord. The Wyck market will be serving till the last Friday in October. I am going home to spend time with my mother in the first week of November, and this is the reason why we are closing up sooner than planned. I apologize to you for any inconvenience this may cause.
For next season, we are putting the farm to rest. I have sown clover which will protect and nourish the soil for one season and I hope to be back the following year to work this lovely piece of land and share the harvest with all of you.
I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow!

Your farmer,
Kripa

A Little Something Else

Half Life
By Stephen Levine

We walk through half our life
as if it were a fever dream
barely touching the ground
our eyes half open
our heart half closed.

Not half knowing who we are
we watch the ghost of us drift
from room to room
through friends and lovers
never quite as real as advertised.

Not saying half we mean
or meaning half we say
we dream ourselves
from birth to birth
seeking some true self.

Until the fever breaks
and the heart can not abide
a moment longer
as the rest of us awakens,
summoned from the dream,
not half caring for anything but love.
