flux on flux



the more the valley

ripens in harvest

the more the vast

harvests the valley

vast, it reaches

every corner & far

it reaches – vast

the harvest is vast

it reaches more & more

the harvest is covered

in varied corners – it

grows & it covers more

& more every time

as it ripens – the more

the valley, the vaster

the harvest – it grows

when all things ripen

& the valley is glad
