Poetic Scenery


 

 

The cotton shimmers beneath the withering sun.

Workers dragging long canvas sacks, bleached

dirty white, like tails behind them

wipe perspiration from their brow with hankies

fresh washed the day before.

Stalks bearing frothy hulls sway, a breeze has

sprung up from the west. Sagging shoulders straighten

in anticipation of the sinking sun, the cooling day,

a victory won in this war against hunger in the

White River Basin where I was born.

Cotton bolls, Boll Weevils, back breaking work, taking the cotton to market. "Them old cotton fields back home..." Thanks for reminding this Georgia boy, of his pre-Civil War heritage. Well done Linda!
