A world away

Laborer and oxen are drawn to slumber and to toil. trodden fields of dawn through basalt seeded soil. A consistent daily chore broken and blistered skin farming out of folklore the spirit from within. An iron age passes by, ploughed by tools of wood Faces etched, livelihood. (The traditional farmers of Nicaragua)

    A story well told Gerald, there are people in the world who struggle to take a living from the land and it is told in your poem. Nicely done! :)
