Blacktop driving drifts
Reflecting the corn stalks

Vapors twine within the dirt
Corn wound in swirls of steam

Cooling in the fields

Hand to dampened forehead in the
Garden when July rules all that is

Feeling the touch of mist upon my
Breast heaving in the heated damp

Could I but touch this mouthful of air
This inhalation of dirt, my own buried seeds

I would grow the world a universe

    Dear Suresh,

    You know, when I imagine India, in my “ignorance”, I never visualized a cornfield. Thank you.

    And, I cannot take credit for the framing!

    Glad you enjoyed this photo.

    Nice to see you also.

    Dear Allen,

    Thank you for visiting.

    I have had this idea saved for a while. I was driving to work, the fog was thick, and the corn appeared surreal and real at the same time.

    Then, the summers in Nebraska are humid by my standards. It is not New Orleans but it is hot! Too hot for Kim, that is for sure.

    Thanks, this one cooked for a bit.

    Kim
