Farmer’s Market

IMG_5282

Spring at the farmer’s market.
Pent up enthusiasm for the new harvest
resulting in a  scamper to gather up
armloads
of lettuce crisp with
the flavor of sunshine and showers.
Reaching for freshly gathered eggs, 
their softly tinted shells
protecting richly hued yolks.
The stalls will groan with
towering piles of produce
as the summer gathers steam,
but the joy of the early market
with its current treasures
and the promise of the largess to come
is its own reward on a lovely day in Spring.
