Written for the help_haiti auction, specifically for[livejournal.com profile] simplelyric, five more coming soon.

Kansas Fog
Freezing pearl-hued mist,
can just tell it’s snowing.
The ground slick with ice,
like walking on a window,
too delicate to remain.

Untilled Ground
Golden grass below,
from here it looks so pristine.
Horses running through
catch burs in their hides and know
the price for blazing unknown trails.

Peace
After the storm come
miles-long herds of antelope,
placidly grazing
on the roadside while our cars pass,
they oblivious to danger.

Minimalist Gardening
The dawn wakes with us.
Air smells like jasmine green tea,
iris-the culprit.
Neighbors tear them out today,
replacing them with nothing.

Small Blessings
White flurries of rage
strengthen the screaming wind storm,
building up against my door.
Ice-hills keep me trapped inside.
Thank God for the fireplace.
