By Anna Von ReitzWe finished the last jar of cherry jam this morning.
I view the empty space on the pantry shelf.
There are some things you can’t buy at a store.
Only time will bring the cherry trees to blossom, the bees to swarm
All the intricate miracles will have to be reborn —-another generation.
Late in July the cherry season will come again with brown paper bags of fruit and we will eat our fill
And jealously preserve the rest.... but....
Many wings must fly and many breezes blow between now and then
That moment when the new cherry jam is back on the shelf, and everyone quietly thinks
No, you can’t buy that at Costco.
