Full Disclosure: This post and these photos originate from April 26/20.
Our small Alberta city is still surrounded by farmland. Recent land annexations by Beaumont and Edmonton, will no doubt change that in the future, but for now, we are fortunate to have prairie vistas so nearby. These shots were taken as part of our walk to the “sinkhole”
Winter’s remnants now barely seen,
rows of stubble, no snow between.
South winds gust, spinning shiny blade,
leafless trees shudder and sway.
Spring melt water lay in deep pools
spreading ev’rywhere, breaking rules.
Thin rims of white hug fence line posts.
as sun and winds do their utmost.
No green leaf shows, not e’en one shoot,
as we trudge along rural route.
