The wind will keep them gossiping
for hours. Just under, under the mud,
their sensual toes curl for the touch
of water. Before a snowfall
one can follow their tracks, down and back.
They disappear in their tattered capes,
belted with buckles of gold. They are
the pampered ones - often spoiled brats.
On hot days they wear spinelike feathers
pinned to bonnets of blue. Sometimes
snobbish and high-strung, they are
unpredictable, these tall girls.

Being an Indiana boy, transplanted to Virginia, this touched a deep chord inside of me. Sorry for the plagiarism, Michelle, I felt the same. Nice, Americana imagery.

I have had this re-acurring dream
where I am lured out of my window by a mysterious man
(handsome I am sure) his shadow anyway,
and we embrace in the darkness surrounded by cornstalks that block the majority of the sunlite....
not really but for some reason this is what I thought as I read this

thank you for sharing I did enjoy your poem
and the thoughts that lingered from *BigSmiles
