prairie winds pantoum

 

perpetual prairie wind moans lonely lowing sound

in search of mischief, gust scatters dry leaves along

on midnight prowl, gale must howl like lost hound

across empty fields, wind sings a melancholy song

 

in search of mischief, gust scatters dry leaves along

seeds fly, tree branches sway, wild grasses bend,

across empty fields, wind sings a melancholy song

laundry flaps on lines, blows off, hung up again, again

 

seeds fly, tree branches sway, wild grasses bend,

rusty windmill squeaks, giant wind turbines hum

laundry flaps on lines, blows off, hung up again, again

tumbleweeds twirl, dust devils whirl, grasshoppers strum

 

rusty windmill squeaks, giant wind turbines hum

on midnight prowl, gale must howl like lost hound

tumbleweeds twirl, dust devils whirl, grasshoppers strum

perpetual prairie wind moans lonely lowing sound

the nose knows

 

this poet followed nose to see

all the smells that comfort me:

new mown hay… alfalfa, please

fresh laundry dried on gentle breeze

strong coffee brew drips into pot

wood shavings piled under knot

just bathed baby’s silken skin (the

top of head where hair grows thin)

lilacs, idyllic of childhood play and

an orchid corsage on Mothers Day

pancake breakfast with bacon frying

crunchy leaves when geese go flying

salty spray froth-whipped by boat or

wrapped warm in mother’s worn coat.
