Slash and burn; erase
No trace of harvest remains
Rice field, now meadow

  1. Interesting the perspective from different parts of the globe--rice. We just finished wheat harvest.

  3. I love the word "fallow" - those round vowels. Say it aloud with me... fallow... aloud... fallow... aloud.

    Ahhhhh.

    Disappearing traces all across our three word wednesday adventure today!

    Read my 3ww here.

  4. Very evocative.The word erase seem to suggest some kind of finality here. As if the rice will never grow again.

  5. Here in Oregon we say that when an apartment complex is named Meadow's Edge that is what they covered up to built it. Sad isn't it?

    I like what happens in your poem much better.

  6. Thanks to;
    Lilibeth; The rice harvest was actually at the end of last year.
    Thom; Very limited mechanisation, a real 'hands on' job.
    Anthony; What goes round...
    Julie; That's where the words lead us this week.
    Vivek; Planting is taking place about now, and harvest at the end of the year. For 6 months it's too hot and dry, so the fields are left to return to the wild.

  7. I love that it sounds almost violent, but such is the life of a crop.

  16. Thanks to:
    Dee; The title 'Fallow' is perhaps ironic - or even naive from the farmers' perspective.
    Alice; No problem.
    Tumblewords; I never saw the coincidental similariy...
