Summertime on the High Plains
Decent into the bowels of triple-digit days
rarely relieved by nature’s evening plays
of electricity and torrential rains.
Always a blowing breeze across the prairie
dancing alongside trees that surround every dairy
bees buzzing among wildflowers
landing on petals and leaves
during daylight hours
Birdsong brightens the dawn
mothers foster their fawn
colors give way to
an estival festival
of green phenomenon.
