Parallel Purposes


stretched across the landscape
train tracks and phone lines
corn rows and pasture fences

Distant Snow


as our weather rises and shifts
winter still holds fast
to the horizon

Indian Paintbrush’ed


like watercolors
prairie fire bleeds color
across the landscape

 

Boundless


into the blue
the oh so blue sky
limitless universe unveiled

March’s Indecisive Landscape


snow recedes
while ever approaching
on the horizon

The Wind Winds Down


peeking out
the storm’s force and fury
remains in the tilted horizon

Fog’s Clarity

the future disappeared
along with the horizon
leaving the delicate determination of now

New Horizons

DSC02257
winter caresses
the line of the limb
the reach of the branch
every new horizon

Hint of Spring

DSC00194
Winter lingers on the mountains
lichen greens the birch bark
the air hints of spring

Outcropping

DSC02205

The granite ledge
makes itself known
by refusing all trees.

Horizons

Standing in the quiet of the field
in the gentle morning light
the mountain range rests in soft clouds
all is as it should be.
