TEXAS PANHANDLE – CAPTURED IN HAIKU

© by James L. Reveal

CAUGHT, TUMBLEWEEDS LINK
ARMS THROUGH STRANDS OF BARBWIRE FENCE
VAGRANTS PIERCED BY WIND

SLANTED SHAFTS OF GRAIN
WAVES ROLLED FLAT BY WIND AND RAIN
GOLDEN OCEAN SWELLS

CHARGED BOLT STREAKS, EXPLODES
BACKLIT CLOUDS QUIVER INDIGO
AUGUST ELECTRIC

WINDMILL SENTINEL
SPINS SUMMER SKY WITH VAST PLAIN
SEAMLESS HORIZON

NEW MAIZE BORN IN ROWS
DEFIES HARDENED PRAIRIE SOIL
EMERALDS IN THE DUST

SHRILL CICADAS PREEN
CHORUS IN CRESCENDING WAVES
BLUES, WHERE NO BIRDS SING

SMALL HOUSES HUDDLE
ROUNDED UP CLOSE FOR SAFETY
FIXED CONESTOGAS

RIBBONLIKE CLOUDS SHROUD
COLORS OF PALO DURO
EASE DRAINED SUN TO EARTH

CUTTING THROUGH VASTNESS
LONELY TRUCK ON TWO LANE ROAD
A STARLIGHT BLANKET
