From Skylandia:

Skylandia
a place where
clouds sail
over pine forests
and sweep down
deep, cold lakes
over fields of wild grasses.

A place located
at the crossroads
of reality and myth
on a map that requires
faith to unfold
where belief unlocks
a farmhouse that has no keys
and the taste of raspberries
tumbles down hillsides.

 

Good Earth

A sweep of golden grasses
swaying over
long swells
of hills.

breathless blue sky.
Perfect farm girl clouds,
fresh, fertile
clean, white laundry
sheets hung on the line.

North country days
never-ending,
time playing out
summer’s spindle.

Wind blowing brightly,
lifting hair off hot necks,
sending mosquitos tumbling
bringing the scent
of good earth to the air.
