There’s a bit of prairie
nested between the two

mountain passes
with long long grasses

and with all the wind
today it seemed

like green water
an inland ocean

a true friend
familiar but never

not surprising
and the big hawks

were out today
circling the foothills

like shadows

from the ground
and their shadows

of shadows
like afterthoughts

and a lone

crossed 97
still a little green

but it’s early
in the season

and things will build
from here–


  1. The imagery in this poem is done so well…I feel like I am living inside of it. I really enjoyed this! Thanks for sharing!


  2. This poem is one of the most beautiful and flowing I’ve ever read. I’m a huge fan of the nature imagery and the smooth and subtle way in which you portrayed your ideas. I absolutely love this! Thank you for sharing it.


  3. “a true friend / familiar but never / not surprising”… could say that about your poems, too. Great stuff, and I’m so glad I get to see your work.
