Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

Iowa

December 2, 2010

undulating hills
pregnant with crops

concrete ribbon
cutting through

past clustered farm buildings
hunkered against the cold

hogs basking in their filth
cows gleaning the fields

corn, hay, and silage
stored up for hardship

amid the bounty
I carry
Ella, Lu, and Mira
to warm the bones
of their grandparents
before that same winter
