wheat from the chaff

4 Feb

i am a miller

i work in the silence of my own pursuit

guiding the wheel upon the stone

grinding out a loaf of soft delicious bread

it’s been a meager harvest

but i’m a miller

and i can make the best of it

separating the wheat from the chaff

preserving that which shall sustain us

from that which shall return to the earth

giving life to the ageless dirt

i am a miller

i am what i am come rain or come shine

don’t care to brag

i prefer to keep things plain

no praise

no blame
