Some slaughter a cow, cook and share with othersSome cook cauldrons of food to share with one and all
Some party all day even for five days
Some sing pray and decorate their prayer houses
Some nominate a harvest master.
Harvest time is remembering others and sharing with them
Harvest time is about others’ happiness and well being
Harvest time is making sure others have enough to live on
Harvest time is remembering that we are all helpless without the grace of God.
Harvest time is this message:
‘I am because you are!’ an African adage.
