Cherries

The cherries are now on sale for $0.99 a pound. I love cherries, and the Little Fayoumis likes them too. I wound up buying six pounds, at a quarter the cost it would have been if they hadn't been on sale.

Mmm, the cherries.

I have enough of them that I may well make some project to sit in the back of the refrigerator until winter.

These cherries are rich red and bleed on everything. They're mostly sweet, but there's something just slightly tart about them that makes my tongue sticky.

The Little Fayoumis approves: he likes cherries, especially with the stems on them.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
