Tomatoes in Reillanne Market

Tomatoes in Reillanne Market

Beans Green and Yellow

In fall
it is mushrooms
gathered in dampness
under the pines;
in spring
I have known the taste of the lamb
full of milk
and spring grass;
today
it is beans greens and yellow
and lettuce and basil
from my friend’s garden
how calmly,
as though it were an ordinary thing,
we eat the blessed earth.
