Notes from the Road

greenfields3d.jpgNow which way do we go?  Dorothy – The Wizard of Oz

I understand the phrase “sea of green” now.

I look left,

I look right. 

I see rolling prairie

Waving,

Stretching,

Touching

Clear blue horizon.

White cotton balls dot sky and spackle shadow across land. 

Green and Blue

Swallow me.

Driving through Kansas is everything I imagine it will be.

Yet America is a poem in our eyes; it’s ample geography dazzles the imagination, and it will not wait long for metres. –Ralph Waldo Emerson, “The Poet”, Essays, Second Series, 1844
