Got a photo postcard today
from my brother who stayed
back on the old place
north of Concordia
when the rest of us moved to Colorado.
Looks like they've got no complaints.
"Richard on Eds shoulder,
he couldn't look out. Mrs. and myself
in our oats field, it made 62 bu."
We watch the clouds build up in the west,
watch them pass by our fields,
watch them continue east to deliver their rain.
It's sure enough dry here -- nearly desert.
But there's a beauty in it, and we are learning
to lean into the wind and weather. We'll stay.
