Fields of grasses
dried blonde by the sun
shadowed by storms
royal purple clouds reaching
toward the oceans like old coke bottles
rain streaming deep into the red soil
bulging dirt gives way
tentacled weeds grabbing fiercely
in the twilight cast by oak trees
shining leaves dying
drying richly orange
under the swelling storm clouds
rain like cold pebbles nurturing its
upturned arms
