Poetry Friday -- High Plains in Summer
HIGH PLAINS IN SUMMER
Yesterday it rained.
over a three-hour period.
High plains equivalent
of a good, soaking rain.
Today it's clear and hot.
Winds gusting to 39 out of the south.
At least the dirt's not blowing.
for high nineties
the next three days.
Tourists driving through on I-70
see flat, boring, brown fields.
They don't realize
those are their groceries

Carol has the Poetry Friday roundup at Carol's Corner. Tomorrow, she and I will link arms and wander through the Denver Botanical Gardens.
Just a few more slots left in the July-December Poetry Friday roundup schedule. If you haven't claimed one, go get one now!
