november colors dakota

 

honk gray geese vee tattoo

across low-flying sky’s ceiling.

 

ice-edged blue pond fingers

reedy border of dry wild rice.

 

undulating green winter wheat field

interrupted by bare windbreak.

 

peely red shed leans lopsided into

prevailing prairie headwinds.

 

buff-brown buck grazes placidly

among herd of hardy range cattle.

 

flap black crow caws contrary to

silently melting snow pile.

 

tufted straw-gold crop debris

disk-mixed into fallow, fertile soil.

 

sunny silver beams gleam earthward

 between radiant cracks in clouds.

 

inspired white church steeple points

gratefully back toward heaven.
