Ripeness by Raymond A. Foss

It is a more ephemeral,
a more undefined quixotic thought
not the chronological age,
of so many days, of years
Ripeness, being ready
prepared for God’s harvest
Something we cannot know
we who toil in the garden,
the field, the vineyard
We plant the seed,
water and tend the garden
God alone brings the growth
and picks the appointed hour
for the harvest
