autumn ritual

as the days shorten
the morning air nips
and the harvest is gathered
something kicks into gear
and i know.

it's tomato soup time.

[washing and cutting]

[pureeing and cooking and stirring]

[measuring and whisking]

[straining and thickening, filling and sealing]


[boiling and timing]

[cooling and admiring]

[labeling and storing]

today i made
25 pints of tomato soup.

i am tired
but am delighted with the knowledge
that golden harvest is preserved
to brighten the cold dreary
dead of winter.
