Summer Took Me By The Hand

and stretched before me
verdant, tender, true
as the great green meadow

Parallel Purposes

stretched across the landscape
train tracks and phone lines
corn rows and pasture fences

Distant Snow

as our weather rises and shifts
winter still holds fast
to the horizon

Indian Paintbrush’ed

like watercolors
prairie fire bleeds color
across the landscape



into the blue
the oh so blue sky
limitless universe unveiled
