Sunday Whirl Wordle #176
time concern collaborate state care contact
compromising decades serve chat community

Harvesting wheat of times past
Horse drawn reapers and binders
Concern for joint efforts extended to last
To collaborate with foreign workers

Crossing state lines over the borders
Care the best part of the venture
Contacts sustained among neighbors
Compromising decades working together

Serving basic needs of extended family
Empty chats were no more kind of silly
Language barriers were resolved easily
When working within the community

For Brenda's Sunday Whirl and
d"Verse OpenLinkNight - harvest

  3. You took me back to the past with your write here, Hank. I like the idea of people working together for the community. I'd like to think this happens today as well in some places.

  9. So good to share the workload - helping each other with harvest - somehow that's we need to help each other independent of language

  10. It seems the more technology comes or way to make our lives better, the more disjointed our society becomes. It might be good for us to go back to the days of hard work and honest conversation

  11. I do remember those days of cooperation. I would like to think in some places this camaraderie still exists.

  12. In some families the camaraderie does exist. As long as everyone in in a forward mindset. You have to try. Sometimes pleasant surprises happen. Nice write about the old days. But, the small guy does not have all that mechanized luxuries.

  16. I like your poem. It has some tenderness to it even though it talks about hard working people whose circumstances can be tough.

  18. Nice form, rhythm, worked well with the chosen words to form a poem of co-operation, of building a new world of neighbors, friends. We miss that now. That message seeped through the lines as well. Good work.
