Me As Landscape

    This is the farm in South Dakota where I spent my first 4 years

Conger Place 1995-1

Rolling hills, rocky soil

needing to be cleared for planting and harvesting,

and a meandering stream.

Smell of new-cut hay in a partially mown field.

Cotton clouds floating by overhead

slowly, slowly.

Oat field of waving grain,

gentle breeze-blown,

as far as the eye can see.

Black earth, cool and inviting to be touched,

so it gets ground into the skin.

Good! Good!
