Photo Challenge: Corner

The first hint comes just at moon rise 
on an ordinary August weeknight. It's
hardly a breeze at all, certainly not
enough to toss or even tickle a leaf
but still a few degrees cooler with just 
 
a bit more oxygen than usual. Meanwhile, the chickory sway with clean priorities; frank blossoms the color of midnight with no pretense of foliage. The goslings on 
the pond have traded their oatmeal down 

for more sleek travel attire and lifted 
off for their first long distance flight,
leaving me flat-footed in a dimming 
season, longing for fresh wings to glide 
a sore heart above the cool indigo prairie.

(WordPress Photo Challenge is a weekly prompt to share a photo–I enjoy twisting these macro prompts to share our micro life here on the Colorado prairie. I take these photos with my phone, on my farm. No psych, definitely not high-tech.)

    Thank you, Anna, for this moment of respite during this horrific Houston weather we are experiencing. Love your photography, poetry, writing & wisdom!

    Ran across your books (and bought them) Stable Relations and a Relaxed and Forward. Your writing is a unique form of poetry, wisdom, & honesty. Many benefit from your efforts to share what you have learned through experience including the multitudes of two and four footed among us who don’t read!
