Snapping ends

snapping ends
off fresh asparagus—
this brisk fall day
the satisfaction
that comes with clean breaks

  5. thanks, susan I-know-who, jenny, wendy, and lisa! there's something about both crisp fall days and the sound and feel of breaking the ends off fresh asparagus. (btw, we can get fresh asparagus throughout the year here.) and sometimes it feels good to just move on.
