Taken down by the wind
now the the mighty pine
nourishes the river bank and bottom.
So goes the cycle of life.

First Red Tree

Along the great Long River
the first touch of Fall, a splash of red,
presents itself along the southern bank.


The fields form a patchwork quilt,
a growing green cover that reaches from the river bank to the mountains.
Tied together with labor and nurture for the purpose of sustenance.
