Long Country Roads

Farmland Sunset

Driving long country roads at the start of Spring
the dirt doesn’t billow and hover
coating everything and everyone like in heat of Summer,
Winter’s blanket removed – the fields are
greening – the earth is breathing;
the palpitating earth passes by as I drive and
wipers beat a calming rhythm,
as nourishing rain gently falls
in the moist of spring, the soil is receptive,
waiting to yield to the plow –
to give itself, to offer its bounty long dormant.
