    -------------------------------------------


    The first frost bites
    hard on my tomatoes,
    Like diamonds glistening
    In the October air,
    Scarce green from too short
    a summer.
    A bounty never reaped,
    but perhaps in a soup
    or fried,
    It wont matter how they
    died,
    or the rows too wide.....

      Your ending lines, "It wont matter how they died,
    or the rows too wide....." speaks beyond tomatoes and certainly could be a metaphoric look at the little things in life that bother us more than necessary. I really enjoyed this poem and hope you have some fabulous soup/stew from those frozen tomatoes! :-) Sharon

      I love pieces like this that are from the heart and like life's little fried green tomatoes.

    It's very hot here so this piece was chill for me!

    Great!
